For the past 25 years Tom Chiginsky has been designing and enabling complex digital work flows and media experiences. Most recently Tom has co-produced over sixty crisis simulations around the globe. The simulations included cyber-attacks, mine collapses, terrorism, executive kidnappings and any one of a number of events that will challenge large organizations to respond to incidents and not allow them to develop into a crisis. Clients have included Repsol, Irving Oil, Allstate Insurance, Mosaic Mining, State Street Global Advisors, Mead Johnson and Swiss regional governments among others. All of these engagements required re-engineering process and breaking down cultural barriers across all management layers.
Tom also was part of a small group of technologists advising the IAEA in New York and Vienna, Austria through the Dept of Energy on building global collaborative process and tools to interdict fissile material that could be used to develop WMD. He has given presentations across the Dept of Energy’s internal television network and in person, the focus of which was getting the right information, to the right people at the right time.
He has also produced several e-learning courses for travel security, port security awareness and the understanding of school shootings. In prior years he was also a digital workflow consultant to luxury retailers with offices in New York, London and Milan. He re-designed and rebuilt ineffective digital work flows that enabled internal teams and external partners to collaborate more effectively.
Tom is an avid sailor and competes in both inshore and offshore races. He lives in Rhode Island.
