Tom Hall is chairman of Tucker/Hall, one of the leading public relations firms in the Southeast and the largest in Tampa Bay. Their practice includes public affairs, crisis, and strategic communications. He has researched fast-growth companies for years and has written a successful book titled Ruthless Focus about corporate strategy.

Hall has built and sold two companies to national firms. He started and built Creative Seminars into the largest advertising education firm in the US and sold it to Adweek Magazine in New York. He owned and built Ensslin and Hall Advertising into one of the largest marketing firms in the South and sold it to Earle Palmer Brown in Washington.

Hall invented a formula for getting free media for public service advertising and used it to get  more than $50 million in anti-drug abuse ads for the state of Florida. He then gave the formula to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, which has gotten more than $3 billion in free media with the system.

He is the first person to receive the Partnership's lifetime achievement award and was invited to the White House by President George H. W. Bush in recognition of his efforts. He led the effort to build the Florida Aquarium which is credited as the catalyst for changing downtown Tampa into a more balanced city. He was involved with the Tampa Downtown Partnership's efforts to get the new cruise terminal, residential in the Channel District, and the Tampa Bay Times Forum. He is a former member of the National Advertising Review Board and the AAAA National Committee on improving advertising.
