financial-advisor-wilson-ncTom began his insurance career in August 1981. It was a memorable month as he got married, moved from Fayetteville, NC, and started working for Horace Mann, a company that specialized in working with educators. He met a lot of teachers, principals and coaches in those first three years and many are still friends and clients. His Dad started an independent agency in the 1960’s and was ready to retire so his brother and he bought that agency in Rocky Mount, NC in 1984. He never left Wilson and his brother still owns the agency their father started.

His Wilson roots were growing deeper and he found a home at the John Hackney Agency in 1986. They were looking for someone to grow the life, employee benefits and investment business. It has been a good fit, the partnership is still working very well thirty years later.

Tom graduated from East Carolina University in 1975, spent a year in graduate school and then went to work for the State Employees’ Credit Union. In 1989, he received his Chartered Financial Consultant designation from the American College.

The best thing that happened in the Fayetteville chapter of his life was he met Deenie, who is now a retired art teacher and artist. Together they have three children, Jon, Alison and Katy. Jon is married to Caitlin, and they live in Raleigh. Alison and Katy currently reside together in the west village of New York City. They both work for Michael Kors, a fashion company.

He enjoys playing golf with his buddies and spending time and summer vacations at the family gathering place in Topsail Beach.
