What do you do after a career at BMW?

Tom McGurn earned his first paycheck as a journalist writing sports for a daily newspaper while still in High School. He continued to work as a part time journalist during college and then pursued a career in public relations after graduation. In 1975, at age 28, and with about 5 years of experience, he got a huge break. He was hired as part of the start-up management team at BMW of North America. The sales and marketing arm for Bavarian Motor Works. He didn’t leave until he retired at the end of 2007. During his career, Tom was responsible for public relations, industry affairs, dealer relations, and a host of communication responsibilities including; speech writing, corporate meetings and training.   When he retired he had to ask himself the question, "What do you do after a career at BMW"?

VOLUNTEER AND PHILANTHROPY

Tom discovered early on in his retirement that one of the things he wanted to do was Volunteer as he did during his career. Tom is a seasoned corporate communications professional and writer. He uses his experience to offer clients fresh perspectives on their communications needs and customer focused writing.   That's how he was able to answer the question, "What do you do after a career at BMW"?

  • He is an active volunteer with SCORE, offering free business counseling for people who are thinking about starting a small business and those who want to increase the performance of an existing business.
