Bio

I am Tom Knight, a co-founder and Partner (along with Erik Birkerts) of Evergreen Growth Advisors  based in Chicago. At Evergreen, we help companies Grow More, Predictably.

Over the past seventeen years, I have had the privilege of playing key roles as a Partner and General Manager, in several consulting firms that have had a significant impact on the growth trajectories and performance of Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies. Over a twenty five-year career, I have worked in (as general manager and sales leader), and partnered with large and small sales forces and senior management teams and have a strong understanding of how organizations work and achieve scale. I draw on this operating experience daily as a consultant, board member, and advisor to young companies.

I currently serve as an advisor to Digital Aisle, an industry-leading media company that is paving the way in next-generation digital shopper marketing solutions. As an advisor, I have been instrumental in sharpening the firms’ targeting, building the firms’ capability to manage its sales funnel, and scale the business into national and super-regional retailers.

In the non-profit sector, I serve as the Board Chair of Year Up Chicago. Year Up provides intensive training and job experience, through a one-year program, to young adults, ages 18-24, who are disconnected from education and a living wage. Our journey at Year Up began over three years ago, since opening in 2010, we have graduated two classes of students, 85% of whom are pursuing school, and 95% of whom are employed. Two additional classes will graduate this year, and by 2014 we will have moved 750 young adults from poverty to professional careers.

I am open to meeting Investors, Entrepreneurs, and Executives interested in scaling revenue and improving the growth trajectory of their companies. Please email me at tknight@evergreengrowthadvisors.com  to discuss how I might be helpful to you.
