Tom Hair Portrait

Swimmer, Founder, Motivator

Tom Hair has been in the branding and creative communications business since the time he graduated from Texas Tech University over 40 years ago. After spending two decades gaining agency experience in Dallas, Atlanta and Houston, Tom founded Axiom in 1998. Spanning 20 years and multiple market cycles, Tom & team have continually leveraged technology and time-tested values to keep Axiom at the forefront of their industry. Tom is as proud of the tenure of his employees at Axiom as he is the firm’s enduring reputation in the Southwest market.

Most mornings I start with a 3,000 meter swim class. Quite often when I am working through the swim sets, a great idea or two floats by me.

Tom Hair is a native Houstonian. He will tell you that his greatest personal accomplishment to date is the restoration and adaptation of Fire Station 6 (built 1903), which received the Good Brick Award from Preservation Houston in 2013. The building has been home to Axiom since 2012. Tom views the restoration of the historic building as exemplary of revealing a brands true essence and letting it shine.
