Tom Soohoo grew up in San Francisco’s Sunset neighborhood and graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1995. After graduation, Tom worked in software consulting and design for nine years before making a career change into the construction industry in 2004 with Webcor. He says, “I originally thought I would just complete one building and head off to business school, but 17 years later, here I still am. I fell in love with the camaraderie of the people and the product that we build in this business. I find nothing more fulfilling than both leading and participating in teams that build something that another person can use to live, work, play, worship, rest, heal, and enjoy.” The last 10 years of his Webcor career have been focused on business acquisition: both the strategy and execution of winning projects. He currently leads the Marketing Department at Webcor where the focus is attracting new work and driving the Webcor brand to external markets.
