Thomas specializes in senior and executive recruitment for the tech industry with a particular focus on the Cloud Infrastructure & Cyber Security space.

 Thomas started his recruitment career in 2015 at a famous global recruitment company mainly working in tech contract recruitment. He was able to produce excellent results in the company, ranking in the top five of consultants overall in 2017 and becoming the number one top biller overall and Consultant of the Year in 2018. At that time, he moved into permanent recruitment and a management role where he oversaw the Digital Technology and Media team.

He quickly came to love Japan and in the next five years he  managed to visit all fourty-seven prefectures of Japan twice. In his spare time, Thomas enjoys PC & console gaming, drinking whiskey, and contemplating what it means to live a meaningful life.
