We are Thad and Chris, the energy behind TC Loox. We have learned first-hand the golden rules of organizational excellence...largely through 30 years of military service spanning 19 unique jobs, 15 moves, 17 years abroad, and 3 kids. Whether running a flying squadron, canoeing with Boys Scouts in Minnesota, or leading a diplomatic team during revolution-torn Egypt, we have experienced some enduring truths: In any organization, a clearly defined purpose underpinned by well-derived objectives is an absolute must. Coupled with an excellent team, success is assured. Although the axioms are universal, all organizations are unique. They require tailored strategies to realize their distinct institutional goals and be fully ready for the next opportunity to realize increased growth and profits.
We are passionate about organizational excellence.
