Meet The Owner of Zoom Drain of Galveston
Oleander City Local provides expert drain and sewer services on the Gulf
Zoom Drain of Galveston owner/operator Thomas Gallagher is Texas-born and bred. He grew up in the Galveston area, graduating from Texas City High School, where he played football. Thomas attended the University of Houston, receiving a Bachelor of Business Administration with a degree in accounting, before settling in the Alvin area.
Thomas spent 28 years working for a Fortune 1000 company in various stages of product development. He has experience managing budgets and finding cost-effective solutions, as well as growing and leading teams around the world.
Thomas was drawn to Zoom Drain after his own first-hand experience with the difficulties of finding plumbers to clean the drains of his rental homes — he owns and manages eight single-family rentals. One of the biggest advantages of Zoom Drain for Thomas is the brand’s recession resistance, but he was also excited about the Zoom Drain team and its family-like environment. “The team is a great, knowledgeable group who doesn't leave out the tough parts,” he says.
“The fact is that there will always be a need for drain and sewer services, no matter the circumstances of the world,” says Thomas. “I love this industry. It’s also great to go home each day and know you helped someone out.”
“My career has given me a great background to understand that the keys to success are people and relationships,” says Thomas. “No one is successful by themselves. You need to get the right people, treat them with respect, and give them the knowledge and tools to be successful. If you can do this, other parts of the business will come together.”
