Thomas Truett's Summary
I am a multi-talented twenty-two year old with significant and meaningful work experience relative to my age. I have experience working as an employee, a manager, and as a business owner and I am quickly learning all facets of business from crisis-management all the way down to keeping ink in the printer.
I spend my time completing my college education while still focusing on current and future business development. I will be a graduate of the University of Tennessee – Knoxville in 2015.

Stokes, Williams, Sharp & Davies
January 2013 – Present (1 year 9 months) Downtown Knoxville, TN
My day-to-day at the law firm is hectic to say the least, but I am rewarded every day by the invaluable experiences that I acquire. I spend my days working with great people at dozens of courthouses and law firms throughout East Tennessee, while also managing in-house technology support and business marketing decisions.
August 2008 – April 2014 (5 years 9 months) Knoxville, Tennessee Area
My fascination with technology led me to begin building websites as a freshman in high school. Over the years I have amassed the knowledge and capacity to build high-functioning and cost-effective websites for clients in East Tennessee. In 2014, I decided to expand my services by founding my third company, Make Me Modern LLC.
Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC
January 2012 – January 2013 (1 year 1 month) Knoxville, Tennessee Area
After a year of operating Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC, I decided that a boat rental company would be a more profitable operation in the present dwindling tourism market. Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC was Knoxville's premier boat rental company located on the beautiful waters of the Tennessee River in Knoxville, TN.
Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC
January 2011 – May 2012 (1 year 5 months) Knoxville, Tennessee Area
In 2009, I discovered a gap in Knoxville's tourism industry. A year of planning and investing led to the founding of my first company, Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC, during my senior year of high school. Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals provided an exhilarating experience for its customers on the scenic waters of the Tennessee River in Knoxville, TN.
Volunteer Landing Marina
May 2010 – November 2010 (7 months) Knoxville, Tennessee Area
Working at Volunteer Landing Marina opened my eyes to the complexities of marina management. The ability to work and excel in every aspect of the marina greatly increased my knowledge of the day-to-day challenges that a business faces. Two of my previous businesses (Volunteer Jet Ski Rentals LLC and Volunteer Boat Rentals LLC) operated out of Volunteer Landing Marina.
