Tom Atema Jr.
Owner and CEOA brief company history from Tom
Atema Partners and AP Live Owner/CEO Tom Atema grew up seeing the importance of relationships. So it was no surprise in 2008 when he opened Atema Partners that his goal was to make the company relational above all else. As it blossomed into what today is known as AP Live, it quickly became the premier provider of audio visual solutions for corporate meetings and events, as well as large-format video support for concerts, festivals, exhibits, and everything in between. Coming full circle, Tom attributes its success to relationships—whether it be with the company’s clients, or within his own internal team.
A 1996 Full Sail University graduate, one of Tom’s most rewarding roles is supporting and guiding others in their personal and professional development. He serves on the Board of Directors and Executive Team of Heart for Lebanon Foundation, a faith-based ministry that provides transactional, relational, and transformational relief to refugees in Lebanon. He also serves as on the Board of Directors for Williamson INC, and as an Advisory Board Member of Studio Tenn Theatre Company here in Franklin, Tennessee.
This is a company story worth telling. And so, now Tom has told it—in the form of a brand-new book full of wisdom and practical advice.
