From the time he entered the workforce, Tom Chapman has excelled as a businessman. By the age of thirty, he was an industry leading life insurance salesman, a real estate investor, a building developer, and a citrus grove owner. After becoming a Christian at the age of forty, Chapman felt called to step away from insurance in order to begin Advanced Protection Technologies (APT), an electric power surge protection company that became the leader in the industry and eventually sold to Emerson Electric. Becoming a Christian changed the way Chapman did business and the purpose of his work. His ultimate calling: to give as much as he can.
Tom Chapman lives in Tampa, Florida, with his wife of thirty-seven years, Lee. They have two children and nine grandchildren.
