After completing 26 years of service with the United States Marine Corps and the Los Angeles Police Department, Thomas returned to his roots at Bilmar. Thomas’s grandfather, Dr. William Bryant Rawls, purchased the property in 1936 and founded the company in 1959. William Bryant Rawls Jr. took over as president of the company in 1991, and while he has retired, he still consults for the company. He contributed 50 plus years to Bilmar.
Thomas’s vision is to share the great outdoors, celebrate holidays, and create special memories for families. He wants to make a positive impact on youth, give back to the community, and donate to charities near and dear to his heart. Thomas’s favorite quote is from Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
