Chief Executive Officer – Holtz Companies
Tom is the CEO and Owner of Holtz Builders, Inc. (HBI). Tom directs all activities of the company and leads by example in maintaining a culture of honesty, transparency, and integrity. Tom’s philosophy in life is simple – treat others with kindness and give generously. Tom follows these beliefs everyday by giving back to the communities he works in, both financially and with his time. He has a strong sense of devotion for the nonprofit sector, and a deep appreciation for what he has to share with others, and as such is an advocate and supporter of area nonprofits such as Sleep in Heavenly Peace, local Boys and Girls Clubs, area Food Pantries, Agrace, and many, many more.
Tom has been in the building business for over 30 years and has overseen hundreds of projects from waterparks, large multi-family units, simple and complex remodeling to high end residential, hotels, restaurants and other large commercial buildings.
Tom grew up on a small dairy farm, established in 1895, in a village called Rock Springs, Wisconsin. Growing up on a farm gave him values such as hard work, family bonds, and playing his part to contribute to a family business. He was allowed to play one sport (football) during high school, so he could continue the century old tradition of working on the farm while his father also worked construction and his mother in nursing. Tom likes spending time with his wife and three adult children as well as cheering on the Badgers and Packers, and playing an occasional round of golf.
