Thomas Boyken goes by Thomas, not Tom (although he admittedly will respond to either) He is All Mountain Technologies’ Assistant General Manager focusing on business development. You may see him toting around Penelope his French Bulldog or hitting the greens around the Valley.
Thomas was born in Indiana but moved to Tyler, Texas when he was 8. After graduating from high school, Thomas enrolled in college at Texas State in San Marcos, Texas. He received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in Finance and a minor in Accounting.
After working for start-ups in Austin post-grad, Thomas relocated to Grand Junction for a job with Bucyrus International. Bucyrus, now owned by Caterpillar, is a surface and underground mining equipment company. His dad worked for Bucyrus and he admired the company for taking care of his family throughout his childhood. Every year, the Boykens would travel to Colorado for a convention his father attended. They would make it a point to visit a new ski resort each time they visited, passing through tiny mountain towns. Thomas’ love for Colorado grew. His mom reminds him he first expressed his dream to live there as a child.
While living in Grand Junction, Thomas visited a friend in Vail Valley. He was hooked. Ultimately, Vail was the version of Colorado that Thomas yearned for. Shortly after his realization he made the move permanent and found his place at All Mountain Technologies. He is the definition of Mountain Business and enjoys the variety of amenities the Valley has to offer. Thomas makes it a point to stay involved in the community he loves. Currently residing in Eagle, he sits as the Marketing Chairman on the Board of Directors for Eagle Chamber. He is passionate about creating career paths and keeping talent in the Valley.
Thomas has always loved some level of technology. He views technology as a great tool for business when properly harnessed and used positively to help growth and communication. This is where his true love for technology comes in to play. Thomas conceptualizes technology as “the third leg of what you need; food, water, and technology”. He views IT as a vital part of a business’ health and longevity. He believes the need for IT is only going to increase stating, “if we are doing it right, it should help our clients and then extend out to our community here in the Valley.”
July 1st marked Thomas’ 3rd anniversary with All Mountain Technologies. He has grown with the company and is continuously motivated and inspired by AMT’s CEO, Rob Bruce. Thomas is currently working on his first level of community leadership training. He is constantly seeking to learn how and why things work to elevate the workplace, the community, and our client’s lives in the Valley.
