The famous tag line "Will It Blend?" creates a whole new blend with the introduction of Blendtec's CEO Tom Dickson, as one of the latest additions to The Toy Man® Product Guide Advisory Board. Just as with last week's press announcement of new staff and advisory board members, this is yet another incredible enhancement that is keeping in line with the publication's on-going efforts to deliver high quality content, combining the expertise and knowledge of top professionals from various backgrounds worldwide.
Tom Dickson brings a diversity of education, experience, and personable skills that are sure to take the publication and its programs to an entirely new level of service and accurate information like no other across the globe.
Thomas D. Dickson was born and reared in Menlo Park, California. Tom graduated from Brigham Young University in 1971 with a bachelor's degree in manufacturing engineering. His first employer was Alza Pharmaceutical where Tom secured numerous patents covering everything from motion sickness patches to ophthalmic inserts.
Tom stepped out in the 90's after years of other major successes in business and product development introducing a solution to smoothie shops, coffee houses and restaurants by developing a high powered blender with microprocessors and preprogrammed cycles. The blender took the smoothie industry by storm. Tom’s inventions were so frame breaking that others emulated his technology and design. If you have had a smoothie from a smoothie shop chances are you have tasted Blendtec’s technology.
Tom has always tested the strength of his machines by pushing them to the extreme. To show the power of the blender “Will It Blend” launched in 2006 and spread virally on the net where Tom became a You Tube sensation. “Don’t breath this”, was the first line Tom said after blending marbles and 105 Will It Blend videos later audiences still wait for the line.
Innovation is in Tom’s blood. He creates and builds machines to improve and simplify everyday functions. Over the past 28 years Tom has built a company based on values, innovation, solutions and always fun. He is highly involved in scouting, local community affairs, humanitarian efforts and the lives of his wife, children and grandchildren.
Rev. James G.W. Fisher, CEO and editor for The Toy Man Product Guide shared, "When you take into consideration the impressive history associated with the brief glimpse of Tom's accomplishments, level of humility and good ethical values, it is easy to see how Tom will be a valuable addition to our team. This will help us to maintain a well-balanced perspective in all future planning and development of the services we offer the communities across the globe."
