Tom Kerr was recently named in the 2015 Gulfshore Business 40 Under 40 Top Professionals. The awards recognize 40 individuals under 40 years of age in Southwest Florida who have distinguished themselves in their professions and communities. Tom is a partner at Moore & Scarry Advertising, the nation's largest tier three automotive advertising agency, and co-founder of SPARQ, the social media platform that helps dealers maximize positive online exposure.
Gulfshore Business Top 40 Under 40 showcases the bright talents of business professionals and community leaders. Winners are selected based on honors and awards, community involvement, charitable activities and how applicants distinguish themselves professionally. Gulfshore Business received a record-setting number of nominations this year and the competition was formidable with so many outstanding candidates. A panel of judges carefully reviewed the entries to arrive at the 40 finalists after significant consideration and deliberation.
Tom was one of the select few chosen from this year's submissions. His professional accomplishments were key components of his selection, as well as his extensive charitable and community activities. The growth of his companies and their auto dealer clients reflects Tom's overall business acumen, automotive marketing expertise and focus on retention-- of both customers and employees.
Tom commented, "I am honored by this award and it is a testament to the talent and hard work of everyone at Moore & Scarry Advertising and SPARQ. We all focus on creating the best ROI for our customers and measure our success by their results. I thank everyone that I work with: employees, clients and colleagues for your insight, innovation and initiative that help us all thrive. I also want to thank my family and the community in general. Southwest Florida is a great place to live and work; I'm happy to be a part of the region's continued growth."
In addition to the success of Moore & Scarry Advertising, Tom's achievements include the 2014 launch of SPARQ, a social media management company that provides a seamless platform for customers to share dealership testimonials online. Both companies have increased market share, revenue and number of employees under Tom's leadership.
