Tom Schiappa Jr. Tom Schiappa
Vice President

Experience and Education:
Over 20 years’ experience in Sales, Business Development and Account Management. Prior to joining the Communico team, I worked for FEXCO (an International Finance and Business Solutions provider founded and headquartered in Kerry, Ireland). In my role at FEXCO I oversaw all sales and business development activities in North America.

Previous to this, I worked for Award Group International managing sales and multi-national corporate accounts throughout North and South America. While at Information Builders I directed all sales distributors and value added resellers in the Latin American region.

From 1987 through 2000, I worked at Sikorsky Aircraft. There I started out selling helicopter spare parts to commercial customers then worked my way up to Program Manager where I managed foreign military helicopter and support programs.

I have an MBA and BS degree from Sacred Heart University.

Personal Trajectory:
I love the opportunity to engage with diverse people and tackle big opportunities. I’ve worked in industries as varied as business intelligence software to military helicopters in countries all over the world. This has exposed me to different cultures and ways of thinking, which has made me grow and open up to my fullest potential both professionally and personally.  

I believe in seeing the best in all people, including myself, and treating everyone with respect and kindness.

I do enjoy living life to the fullest and can be distracted by all the pleasures life brings. Does being a news junkie count?

Favorite Project:
Being a volunteer at the Bridgeport city schools and youth organizations.

Special Interests:
I love to enjoy my time off from work. Some of my favorite interests include: International travel, cooking, swimming, going to the gym, theatre, movies, politics and spending time with family and friends.
