Tom Thon

Partner with Sandler Training by The Ruby Group in Cleveland, Akron, and Columbus

With more than 25 years experience of Sales Management and Operations experience in leading multi-market field based sales organizations



Tom is a senior-level sales and operations leader, highly experienced in leading field-based sales professionals with his leadership skills in accountability, energy, integrity, professionalism, and salesmanship.

Tom's selling and sales management career are based on the Radio and Outdoor media industries. (Roles ranged from Account Executive to Sales Manager to GM to Senior VP) In both businesses, Prospecting, Salesforce Development, and Negotiation Techniques were all vital elements to the efficient business unit operations -- and stand today as equal vital elements to Sandler Training.

Tom's specialties include:

  • Leading your field-based sales team in accountability and communication
  • Growing market share in complex business climates
  • Identifying new business opportunities and deploying strategy accordingly
  • Developing customer and co-worker trust

Tom is married to his OU sweetheart, Kathleen, and they are proud parents of three grown children. Tom is committed to giving back to the community and has served on the boards of Red Cross, Recreation Unlimited, Red, White, and Boom, Children's Hospital Development Board, and Secret Santa. He is a past Honorary Chair of the Dublin Irish Festival and recipient with his former radio co-workers of the Business First Corporate Caring Award.

Sandler has given us a systematic detailed sales process to follow. These steps have allowed us to maximize the use of our time to focus on the sales that matter, and most importantly, more likely to secure. Our Sales Team has developed a stronger confidence in their abilities throughout the sales cycle. We are currently closing over 75% of the quotes we are providing, and some members are over 80%. I truly believe this would have not have been possible if you weren't engaged in our training.
