Proud Son of Zig Ziglar
As CEO of Ziglar, Inc., Tom Ziglar shares not only a last name with his father, Zig Ziglar, but he also carries on his philosophy, which is simply, You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.
Prior to being named CEO, Tom began his career in retail and direct sales. He joined the Zig Ziglar Corporation in 1987, learning every aspect of the business as he climbed from working in the warehouse, to sales, to seminar promotion, to sales management and then on to leadership.
With the Ziglar name, Tom has had a lot to live up to. But rather than try to fill his fathers shoes, Tom has created some of his own! He is boldly taking Ziglar, Inc., into the world of social communities, Twitter, blogs, and live video webcasts to present the tried and true message of hope, integrity and positive thinking to a whole new audience. He keeps Ziglar, Inc. ahead of the times with his innovative leadership.
Tom enjoys golf (when time permits) and working out with his dad several times a week. He resides in Plano, Texas with his wife of 22 years, Chachis. They are the proud parents of one daughter Alexandra, and the whole family is owned by one goofy dog named Max. Tom shares his Ziglar writing flair in his core messages and beliefs about business, family, success and the keys to a fulfilling life the Pure and Simple way in his blog at www.tomziglar.com, as well as in live appearances.
