Tom Peterkin

Executive Recruiter

Direct Line: (757) 603-4023

Tom joined TYGES International in July 2011 after a 17 year career in Operations Management with a major Direct-to-Consumer catalog firm, where he held management positions in Merchandise Planning, Fulfillment, and Processing.  He brings a passion and keen listening ear to his discipline at TYGES, finding and matching the right person to the right job. 

Tom volunteers at his church in a number of roles including helping the homeless, singing in the choir and serving in various capacities wherever there is a need.  In the past, he took his love of baseball and coached baseball and softball in the local youth leagues.  He brings this same commitment to TYGES and he is passionate about “making good things happen to other people.” 

He likes the TYGES approach to recruiting because it starts with an understanding of both customers:  the “client” and the “candidate.”  He feels that too often in the recruiting business, the real message from each side gets lost in the noise and the clutter.  His approach – the TYGES approach -- listening, engaging in conversation and listening more, cuts through the clutter.  

Over the course of time, Tom has received numerous compliments about how that approach resonates with his contacts.  Typical responses:  “I appreciate you taking the time to provide such a personal touch to finding customers.” And, “Our conversation today was very helpful.  I appreciate your candor.”         

Originally from North Bergen, NJ, Tom resides in Williamsburg with his wife, Sandy, two rescue dogs, and a son who is a college senior.  Their daughter is a teacher in the local public school system.  Tom holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from St. Bonaventure University in Olean, NY.
