Tom Crossley

Tom Crossley is an Information Technology support expert who is passionate about delivering technology that “just plain works the way it’s supposed to.” Tom is founder and president of Fairoaks Consulting, Inc., bringing world-class, enterprise-level IT support to small and medium-sized businesses for over 20 years. Technology advances at a dizzying speed. While technology helps small to medium-size companies, it also frightens them as they can’t afford the infrastructure to actively adopt the newest and best, nor to defend themselves from the constant threat of being invaded or outdated. For a fraction of the cost, the small to medium-sized company can have all the benefits of a large company’s in-house IT power from Fairoaks. Their motto, “You Manage Your Business. We’ll Manage The Technology Behind It.” sums it all up. Tom prides himself in providing personal service. Distinguishing themselves from a large IT chain’s off-the-shelf service, Fairoaks staff knows their client’s business, their names and their unique situations. They enlarge and empower small companies. Tom’s ethical stand is “I treat my client’s money as if it was my own.” There is no one-size-fits-all service. All of his clients’ IT needs are crafted to align with their business and their budget. “I have to be creative to give them state of the art, essential and affordable service and I’m proud of it.” says Tom. Many business owners are proud to add Fairoaks to their ‘My Doctor, My Financial Advisor and My IT Guy’ list. It’s Tom’s strong belief that the success of small to medium-sized companies is the key to strengthening our nation’s economy. Because of this, he enjoys sharing his expertise with other business owners speaking on data security, network management, business continuity and other topics at live events, radio broadcasts and webinars. Tom graduated summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts in 1979 with a dual degree in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research and a minor in Industrial Psychology. Before applying his practical, nononsense approach to the IT arena, Tom worked for GE as a consultant and manager throughout the U.S.A., the Caribbean and Asia, then co-founded a property management company in Massachusetts. Tom brings his dedication and focus to his personal interests. He is an avid, instrument-rated private pilot who also has a passion for invention. In 2010, Tom patented a new product for a portable, off-airport aircraft tie-down system, and along with his son, Adam, co-founded Storm Force Tie Downs. The product has been sold at trade shows and online since 2011. Away from the office, Tom likes to spend time with his family, getting away to the cabin in Maine for some hiking or snowmobiling. With his family, Tom has hiked and camped from the canyons of Utah and Arizona to the Swiss Alps and Italian seacoast. He’s also been known by his friends, on a clear morning, to extend an invitation to fly with him to Martha’s Vineyard, landing on a small grass airstrip for breakfast at the airfield before work.
