Tom Kaiman: My Hockey Journey
In Dayton, Ohio at the age of 10 years old, I followed in my older brother’s footsteps and started playing the amazing sport of ice hockey. The sport of hockey has taught me so many life lessons and connected me with so many great people along the way. To this day, my hockey connections are my closest friends, my most reliable resources and in many cases are my inspiration for my business ventures. There is a high level of trust and integrity between hockey players and when hockey players shake hands, the hockey handshake is as good as gold.
Growing up playing hockey in both Dayton and St. Louis, I was very fortunate to play Junior Hockey (Jr. Blues and Sting in St. Louis), NCAA Div 1 College Hockey in the WCHA for Michigan Tech and ultimately playing Professional Hockey in the ECHL (Arkansas Riverblades/Baton Rouge Kingfish) and the AHL (Lowell Lockmonsters). While playing hockey at Michigan Tech during my 4 year college career, I received my Bachelors in Civil Engineering. After finishing my professional hockey career my first real estate development project was the New Practice Facility for the St. Louis Blues back in 2003.Through developing 7 sheets of ice in my career, my passion for the sport of hockey and my business model of real estate development have been running a parallel course for most of my life.
