Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Tom Henneman graduated with a degree in law. After spending much time in college organizing parties and nightclub events, Tom found a new path and discovered his passion in the event industry. He began working with Australia’s premier event rental company; Harry the Hirer working predominantly in the private party division. After showing considerable growth within his first year, Tom was tasked to run large scale, world class events such as the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and the Cox Plate Horse Racing Carnival. Tom also managed elaborate private events such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, large scale gala dinners and also specialized in structure installations.
While building his career in Australia, Tom decided he wanted to move to Los Angeles to be with his long distant girlfriend that he met on an earlier trip to the U.S. While reading an article about a large scale Super Bowl party install, Tom discovered Town and Country Event Rentals and its predominance in the Los Angeles market for party rentals. Tom reached out to Richard LoGuercio, owner of Town & Country, to see if any opportunities would arise and the two hit it off instantly! After 6 months of emails, phone calls, visa interviews and consulate appointments; Tom made the overseas move and has begun taking on the Los Angeles event scene!
In addition to Tom’s passion for events, he is also an avid sports fan and traveler. Spending much college vacation time overseas, Tom has visited many countries in Asia, particularly South East Asia, and throughout Africa.
