Thomas Clancy Jr.
As Valiant’s CEO, Tom charts the course of the business, and ensures that the team loves the tribe they’ve joined. Tom’s also a retired rock drummer with no delusions of a mid-life renaissance. He’s also an avid fan of mixed martial arts, tequila and barbecue (not necessarily in that order).
A lifelong troubleshooter with certifications from Apple, Microsoft, SonicWALL and EMC, Tom is a geek that knows his business. Tom is a frequent speaker at industry trade events, including Autotask’s Comm Live, Business Solutions Magazine’s Channel Transitions events, Google’s NY Headquarters, and the AIA’s New Practices and continuing education events. Tom is also proud to be one of the authors of three editions of the Mac OS X Bible, (so he can say he IS Tom Clancy the author).
A born and bred New Yorker, Tom now lives with his awesome wife in lovely Long Beach, NY, so his three sons have a small yard and a world-class beach to play on. But don’t fret for his NYC street-cred – he’s only eight miles from Broad Channel where he grew up.
