Tom Zlaket has been involved in the media business since 1988. He is a graduate of the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio-Television and has worked in multiple areas of the industry, including as General Manager of seven radio stations for a large ownership group. Tom’s career with Kalil & Co., Inc. began in 1996.
When Tom Zlaket was a kid, he spent countless weekends calling radio stations trying to win giveaways… and thus began his love affair with media.
Tom prides himself on remaining objective in an arena of subjectivity, a unique characteristic that has been a success point for him throughout his business career.
He is a diehard Notre Dame fan, and believes that someday in the not too distant (ok…so maybe a very long time from now) future, the Irish will win another football National Championship.
Tom is also a daily follower of the stock market, believing that the best days lie ahead of us, not behind us.
Max Drachman says of Tom:
Tom is very strategic, often visualizing things three or four steps down the road. He is also well organized, which helps him to stay extremely focused on whatever task he is working on at any given time.
