Expert on Entrepreneurship Tom Gimbel


Tom Gimbel went the unconventional route, starting his own company at the age of 26. While that’s not all that uncommon today, it was in 1998. He mortgaged his house, hired two employees, and started making his vision for LaSalle Network come to life.

Today, LaSalle Network spans across the United States and has over 150 employees. It hasn’t all been smooth sailing. Tom’s company survived two recessions and the dot com boom, but through it all, LaSalle has grown every year since inception and have never done a layoff.

  • Tom was named to the Chicagoland Entrepreneur Hall of Fame in 2010, as well as Crain’s “40 Under 40” list in 2009.

  • Tom is an active member of the Young Presidents’ Organization and Board Member of the American Staffing Association and Ounce of Prevention.

  • LaSalle Network is one of only 2% of companies to make the Inc. 500/5000 list 9 years in a row.
