One thing I’ve noticed (in addition to passion and expertise) is the need for highly functioning teams to execute…without a strong team, goals either will take too long to achieve or perhaps never be achieved.

Throughout the past 15 years or so, Thomas Looby has carefully selected the projects he’s worked on. But through it all — new business adventures, different personalities and passions coexisting within teams, seemingly ever-expanding goals and desires — Thomas has found that one thing has to remain in order to secure success.
It’s all about great teams. “I love getting up to work in the medical device technology sector everyday,” Thomas continues. “And the one thing I’ve noticed, in addition to passion and expertise, is the need for highly functioning teams to execute. No matter how good a product may be or how dedicated each individual is, without a strong team, goals either will take too long to achieve or perhaps never be achieved. I have been proud to have led some of the best teams in the medical device industry.
Thomas is currently Partner and CEO-in-Residence at Concinnity, LLC, a company that partners with small-to-mid-sized technology companies to accelerate value-creation for the benefit of customers, founders, employers, and investors.
