TOM AARESTAD

“There are a lot of people who dream about having their own successful business. Helping people stay in business and flourish is something that is rewarding to me.”

Tom Aarestad co-found Caldera Business Services after almost a decade of experience working in the industry. He has started multiple companies himself and worked for companies across the board – from contractors, homebuilders and property managers to investment companies and professional services firms. Tom has always enjoyed working with others and helping business owners be successful. When working with Tom you can expect:

Knowledge
Tom loves to learn new things. Ask his wife. With his nose in a book or spending hours surfing the internet for information, he takes “learn something new everyday” to the extreme. Taking the time to learn about your business, how it is structured and how he can help is Tom’s forte.

Detail
Tom won’t sign off on anything until it is complete. His attention to detail is immaculate. Your books and financial statements are safe in his hands – especially if you turn him loose with Excel.

Relationships
Tom has deep relationships with people. You talk, he’ll listen. Understanding people, their businesses and what they value is important to him. He is the go to guy for advice and guidance for his friends.

When not in the office, Tom enjoys spending time with his wife and two young boys. He loves to read and travel both in the U.S. and internationally. Ask him about his trips to Peru or Norway. Locally, he enjoys playing and watching sports, specifically football, basketball, softball and golf. Playing Wii and Play Station 3 with his boys is also climbing the activity charts.
