Meet Thomas “Tom” Betterley

  1.  Tell us a little about yourself and your family.  Where is your hometown?  

I was born, lived in, and worked in Brooklyn, New York until I was 28 years of age.

My wife Christine and I were married at the age of 24 and in 2007, moved to Florida where we could focus on starting a new life together.  I have sold cars, was an account manager for an appliance parts wholesaler and also after being out of work for a year and a half, worked as a landscape technician.

  1.   Tell us three things that most people do not know about you.

1)    I smoke the occasional cigar, of which “My Father” is my favorite brand.

2)   I collect “Savinelli” smoking pipes.

3)   I like to try new and exciting foods and drinks.

  1.  What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?

I enjoy collecting and shooting firearms of all sorts. I am most proud of my newest acquisition, an unfired, bright nickel, 8 inch Colt Python from 1980.

  1.  What do you like to do on your days off?

On my days off, I enjoy a weekend out with my wife at Disney World and also going to the shooting range.

  1.  What is your role at Legal Shred?

I am a Customer Service Representative and Shred Technician.

  1.  Before working at Legal Shred, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

The most interesting position that I have held has to be working in car sales. You get to meet so many interesting people and learn how to interact with so many different personalities.

  1.  What do you like the most about Legal Shred?

One of the main reasons why I like being a Shred Technician and Driver for Legal Shred is that I get to meet interesting people while servicing customers on the road. The other top reason is that I am not chained to a desk, I have the freedom of doing the job my way, while of course following company guidelines!
