Tom Nolan

Chief Financial Officer


Tom is not your typical “numbers” guy. While he is a dedicated and highly knowledgeable CPA, Tom’s true love is Operations – he keeps a keen eye on the bottom line but remains focused on the big picture. Tom has a vast array of leadership experience in both accounting and operations spanning such industries as insurance, staffing and recruiting, direct marketing and media production. He is most often recognized for his technical and analytical expertise along with strong interpersonal skills and great sense of humor.


Prior to joining The Steely Group, Tom spent nearly 16 years as Controller for Viaticus, Inc., the life settlement unit of CNA Financial Corporation. Before that, he served as Controller for Staffing Consultants, Inc., where he also managed seller’s due diligence in the successful sale of the company. His background also includes Controller and Director of Finance roles at the direct marketing agency Latham SRM, and the commercial post-production company, Optimus.


Tom is very active in his community, lending his financial guidance and support to his local Boy Scout Troop and St. Louise de Marillac Parish. He also enjoys spending time with family and friends, organizing fantasy sports leagues, reading historical non-fiction, the melodic sophistication of Steely Dan, and an occasional fine cigar.
