As the Facilities Manager, Tom’s responsibilities include managing maintenance repairs for all electrical, plumbing and heating/air conditioning systems in all areas of the building along with general repairs to floors, walls and ceilings. Tom supervises, trains and coordinates the facility assistants and maintenance handyman for custodial needs for all events including weddings. Keeping our building clean is a priority, and on a weekly basis he schedules and directs the cleaning contractor with our facility assistants to perform cleaning.


Tom brings decades of experience as facilities manager of the iconic art deco Wisconsin Gas Building (he was in charge of the flame!) and then the We Energies downtown plant and associated service centers. Tom didn’t care for full-time retirement. And he loves facilities work and working with people. What a great fit for First Church! Also, he was also a founding members and leaders of the Milwaukee PFMA (Plant & Facilities Maintenance Association).
