City Council Member Tom Ferrell

Tom Ferrell owned an aerospace research company for a number of years in San Diego.
Before that he was the CEO of World Trade Center Sacramento, Economic Development
Director for the Sacramento Chamber of Commerce, and the Director for Quality Management
for Aerojet Rocket Company.

Tom owned a leadership training company working primarily with AT&T labor union officers
and stewards. He was also an adjunct professor teaching Strategic Management in the MBA
program. Previously, he was an Air Force B-52 flight officer and then an Air Force Reservist for
30 years spending a great deal of time assisting in USAF base closures.

Tom moved to Sequim in 2016 with his wife Cathy to be near their family in Seattle and to play
golf year-round under our rainshadow. He served on the Sequim Planning Commission from
March 2018 through December 2019. Tom currently serves as council liaison to the Planning
Commission and on the Fort Worden Advisory Committee advising State Parks.

Common sense, direct talk, apolitical answers, and a bias-for-action are Tom’s approach to City
Council participation.
