WHO WE ARE
How We Got Here
For over 20 years I enjoyed a rising career in one of the world’s most well-known technology companies – but the stark reality hit me: I was not in true control of my career and future. As layoffs swarmed around me, as they say, “the writing was on the wall” for my destiny. So, after some deep conversations with my wife, Helen, we decided it was time to pursue a lifelong passion to start our own business. As a military veteran and with decades of experience in leading teams, I felt I was ready to pursue the freedom and satisfaction of owning and running my own business.
As we looked for businesses to buy, nothing seemed to be a good fit. That’s what we discovered the Signworld franchise model. It was perfect: we could define our own brand, not be burdened with typical franchise royalties and rules, and at the same time we’d have access to abundant support from a network of over 400 other sign business owners across the US.
The Signworld model helped us get a fast start as a new business, but as we grew we also started to define our own culture, values, and methods for helping our customers. While in the beginning we simply focused on creating quality signs, we eventually started learning how our work could make a real, measurable impact on the success of our client’s businesses beyond just making great signs. This realization has over time defined an approach that we proudly call “The Better Brand Process” – which creates a partnership with our clients to help them create unique and multiple sign and branding options they can use to attract and serve new customers.
Our journey to successful business ownership is not unlike that of our clients. Everyday we have the priviledge of participating in the success of those we serve – and there’s nothing better!

Helen is the co-owner and founder of Infinity Signs as well as the creator of our original logo design. She is an avid outdoor person, loves time with grandkids and sure is an awesome cook. She is the one who makes sure we have supplies to work with and the lights are on. She pays all of our service providers and suppliers bills on time and ensures our books are clean, working close with our bookkeeper. To say Helen loves cleanliness and organization, is a severe understatement for sure!

We often hear “That is exactly what I had in mind!”. We feel Tom is one of the best designers in the valley. You surely will not be disappointed.
Tom also enjoys the simple things in life like shredding on his guitar, throwing a ball for his dog Bear, time with grandkids or playing his favorite game in the whole wide world—Candy Crush.
