TechLife Community Builder - Tom Williams


Tom Williams founded InnoGage, LLC in after sensing a tectonic shift with the onset of Web2.0. Tom broke from traditional passive marketing knowing that Social Media would force companies and institutions to Innovatively Engage (aka “InnoGage”) their customers, influencers and decision makers in the marketing and recruiting process.

Tom holds a BS degree in Finance from The Ohio State University and a MBA in Marketing from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. He is also a frequent speaker at conferences and on webinars. Tom is on the Board of ReNew Partnerships, a local Christian Ministry Not-for-profit, a church volunteer and on the leadership team of the Columbus MBA Club. Tom and his wife, Sarah, have been married 10 years and have two little boys.
