AmeriVet empowers veterinarians’ passion for caring for pets, by removing the weight of running the business. In just two years, CEO Tom Thill has grown AmeriVet from 5 to 1,156 employees, generating over $100M in revenue in 2019 alone.
“Know yourself first,” Tom says, when asked his advice to other CEOs building a business. “Discover what you’re great at, and put together a great team that fills your gaps.”
Tom’s other advice:
- Have achievable targets. Culture and values are important, but hitting your numbers is what enables the flexibility to look at culture and values.
- You are smarter than you think you are. Be bolder. Have more conviction in your decisions.
- Do not let perfection be the enemy of great.
