He next founded XNET Corp., creating the first fully automated financial futures and commodities exchange which was acquired by the International Futures and Commodities Exchange in 1983.

In 2001, Tom founded Erevu to develop a policy driven Virtual Machine based compliance and security product. Erivu was acquired by Aladdin Systems, which became part of Broadcast.com.

In 2012, Tom became a founding member and Chairman of STAX, the first exchange focused on the trading of asset backed securities for the transportation and energy sectors.
