Meet Our Executive Team
Co-Owner & President
Tom brings over 30 years low voltage industry experience to Templeton-Vest. An entrepreneur at heart, Tom saw potential in Templeton-Vest’s solid foundation as a fire alarm system company. In 2010 Tom, and co-owner Richard Newcomb, purchased Templeton-Vest and expanded solutions to include security, nurse call and professional audio/visual as well as infrastructure and data solutions. Templeton-Vest has experienced significant growth under Tom’s leadership and continues to thrive.
Co-Owner & CEO

After growing the company for over a decade, he sold Newcomb Electric to Integrated Electrical Services Co but continued to provide leadership and consulting for several years. Sharing Tom’s vision for Templeton-Vest’s growth potential, Richard invested to become co-owner and CEO of Templeton-Vest. Richard brings valuable experience and business insight to the organization.
