Tom LaPaze

Tom’s passion for enabling leadership skills, especially among young people, drew him as a donor of Global Visionaries in 2001. So after more than a dozen years as a Director of Marketing at Microsoft and 7 years as VP for interactive services at the agency DDB, Tom joined the staff of GV in 2015. Why the shift in career? “The world and every social and environment issue will have the need for good leaders, skilled at understanding global perspectives with passion for creating a world that is just and sustainable. If we foster the development of young people to this end, we ensure the future of every beneficial cause.”
