Thomas J. Hutzel
Chief Financial Officer
Tom joined FrontStreet as the Chief Financial Officer four years ago, to grow the company from an entrepreneurial start-up to a national brand. Bringing three decades of Wall Street experience, where he served in a C-level capacity, Tom worked with early stage funding, corporate restructuring, and global expansion of service businesses. Prior to joining, Tom partnered with Skip Warner, FrontStreet’s current COO, where they spearheaded global expansion of back-office support at the world’s largest expert network. Partnering again at FrontStreet, they endeavor to lead the team as an agile and valuable partner to our portfolio of client companies. Unknown to most, Tom is a talented chef and mixologist. He enjoys cooking for his wife and three children, as well as hosting small events. Most of Tom’s spare time is spent outdoors, near his home on the North Shore of Long Island.
Chief Operating Officer
Skip brings to FrontStreet over twenty years of financial and managerial experience having led accounting and operations teams in multiple service industries. Adept at translating numbers into dollars, while having an acumen for process improvements and systems automation, Skip carried FrontStreet into the new millennium. He previously spent several years at the Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), dedicated to building a global enterprise connecting business professionals with industry experts to solve problems through a “platform for professional learning”. He then came to FrontStreet and partnered with Tom Hutzel, former colleague at GLG and FrontStreet’s current CFO, to once again grow a fledgling business. When not in the office, Skip can be found swinging a hammer, lending his handyman skills to friends and family or riding his motorcycle along the Long Island shore. He enjoys time at home with his wife and two kids and coaching his son’s soccer team.
