Tommy WarburtonAccount Supervisor
US born, and Irish bred, Tommy took the scenic route to the PR world, starting his professional career as a high school English and Geography teacher in Dublin, Ireland. Not satisfied with having his fingerprints on one profession, he left the Emerald Isle for the Big Apple and began to pursue other opportunities. Inspired by the hard work and drive to succeed that allowed his parents to carve out a successful life for themselves in the US after moving to Chicago, Tommy has a tremendous thirst for knowledge and self-improvement, and is determined to prove his worth in the world of financial PR.
As a seasoned hospitality professional, Tommy has honed his client service and management skills over the years, bartending and managing a bustling Irish bar in the heart of NYC. Rediscovering his passion for writing in 2016, he began work as a ghost writer which led to a chance opportunity for his first taste of financial PR. It was that experience which gave him the impetus to seek out a career in public relations.
Prior to joining StreetCred, Tommy operated his own communications consultancy firm where he assisted individuals and firms across various industries with copywriting and editing needs. He is excited to work with some of the best clients in the Financial Services industry and to bring his experiences from various other backgrounds to bear.
A graduate of University College Dublin, Tommy holds a double major Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Geography, a Master of Arts Degree in Geography (specializing in US Immigration policy and the Integration of Irish Immigrants in the US), and a Post-graduate Diploma in Education.
Having always been an avid sportsperson, Tommy played soccer and rugby to a high standard, but he was most heavily involved in Gaelic football, and captained the varsity team in his final year at UCD. In New York he continues to line out for the satellite team of native County Westmeath during the summer, when his body allows.
Weather permitting, he can be found in the rough around various golf courses in the tri-state area and beyond.
