Tom Schramski was born in Mankato, Minnesota. After graduating from high school, Tom moved to Arizona where he would live out the rest of his life. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from Prescott College and a Doctorate’s Degree from the University of Arizona in Psychology. After practicing psychology for a number of years, he later went on to found Community Psychology and Education Services (CPES), which served individuals and families with developmental disabilities. He served as Chief Executive Officer for nearly 30 years becoming an advocate statewide for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Upon his exit from CPES, Tom used the experience he gained there to help other owners build value in their company and began VERTESS.Meet Tom's Team
Tom founded VERTESS with the idea of helping people navigate the often treacherous waters of, as he put it, "selling their baby." He understood that transactional work involved far more than the financial aspect - it is an emotional process that requires patience and empathy. Tom was the consummate professional and always maintained the core values of integrity and honesty within our firm and with his clients.
Tom passed away in December 2018. While the team at VERTESS continues to deeply miss him, we are committed to continuing his legacy of excellence as we move forward.
