Tom Bolger joined Sound’s board of directors in June 2020 and serves as Vice Chair. A longtime Seattle resident, Bolger discovered Sound when he was looking to contribute to an organization that focused on many of the community’s most pressing issues, including mental health, substance abuse and homelessness.
Bolger currently serves as Chief Strategy Officer at West Monroe, a national business consulting firm. There, Bolger helms strategic planning, asset development and corporate development. He utilizes his passion for understanding and capitalizing on the future of the consulting industry, which in turn, has contributed to the firm’s high compound annual growth rate. Bolger is also a member of the Investment Committee of West Monroe Capital, a co-investment business he helped design and launch in 2018.
Prior to joining West Monroe, Bolger held a variety of positions at organizations including Washington Mutual, Saltmine and Arthur Andersen. Bolger holds bachelor’s degrees in computer science and psychology from the University of Notre Dame, where he graduated with honors.
When he’s not working or serving on Sound’s board, Bolger can be found leading pro-bono efforts for Seattle-area and national nonprofits, exploring the outdoors, cycling, snowboarding and hiking with family and friends.
