Race Director Wears Other Hats

Race Director Tom Wilson

Most of our runners are most familiar with Race Director Tom Wilson wearing his race hat and holding the megaphone at the starting and finishing line for the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race. However, Tom is just as successful in his business life as he is in his volunteer job as Race Director. So successful in fact, that his colleagues in the Independent Insurance Agents of Connecticut (IIAC) just selected him as the Chairman of the organization for a one year term that commenced on September 1.

Tom was elected to this position at the 112th IIAC Annual Meeting held on June 3, 2010 at the Saybrook Point Inn, Old Saybrook, CT.  The Independent Insurance Agents of Connecticut is a trade association which has been located in Connecticut and has represented Independent Agents for 112 years.  IIAC currently represents more than 400 member agencies and their associates as well as their 3500-plus employees.                                                                                                        

He is Vice President of The Wilson Agency, Inc. in Shelton, CT.  He resides in Shelton with his wife Laura and three children Sean, Jeffrey, and Colleen.  He was acknowledged for his commitment to the Independent Agency System, professional standards, and community involvement.  Among many charitable activities he is currently the Race Director for The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K which has raised over $70,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley. Tom has been a member of the race committee since its inception and is one of the founders of the race.

Congratulations to Tom and continued success in business - and with the race!
