Tom’s Special Announcement

Editor’s Note: Almost twelve years ago we started Tom Warne and Associates as a management consulting firm, providing services to a wide variety of public and private clients. We have been blessed to work with many wonderful people and on many great projects throughout the industry.

In 2004 we started publishing The Tom Warne Report on a weekly basis and now have nearly a 1000 subscribers. Based on your feedback, The Tom Warne Report has provided valuable insights and information for busy transportation professionals throughout the country.

I wanted to let all of you know that starting June 14, 2013, I will be taking a leave of absence from both Tom Warne and Associates and The Tom Warne Report. My wife, Renae, and I have been called by the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon Church) to serve a three-year voluntary mission in Rancagua Chile. We will live there and supervise the missionary work of about 200 young Mormon missionaries in white shirts and ties that you may have seen around your community. We are honored and pleased to serve others in this manner. During the three years I will be focusing 100 percent on this assignment.

However, Tom Warne and Associates and The Tom Warne Report will continue operations as usual. I am currently working with an individual who will assume all current and new clients and continue to provide the valuable services we have offered during the last 12 years. The announcement of who that is should occur in the next 30 days. I know you will have the same confidence in him that you have in me. I look forward to working with all of you again in three years when we return.

We will miss our family, friends and colleagues but look forward to this opportunity to serve the Lord, our church and the wonderful people of Chile. TW
