Tom Ehlers has had 25+ years experience in retail marketing, product management, business development and operations for companies such as Starbucks, Nestle, and Quaker Oats. He currently co-manages a small real estate company and teaches marketing at Seattle University.
His parents’ community volunteer activity impressed upon him at an early age the importance of giving back. His initial contribution to the Issaquah Food & Clothing bank came from launching a Thanksgiving donation drive with his sons several years ago that resulted in collecting 32 bags of clothing. He is continually impressed by the dedicated volunteers and staff at the Food & Clothing Bank and is proud to help with the critical support they provide to the community. He resides in Sammamish with his wife Lorene and two sons, Connor and Kevin, who attend Eastlake High School.
