Tom joined the Crane Agency in June of 1988. He quickly began producing business under the guidance of his father, Thomas J. Berra. Growth came at a fairly rapid pace and in 1993, Tom became a Principal at Crane. This new role provided him the opportunity to contribute to the management of the agency while continuing to grow his business and service his existing clients. Also, during this time, Tom obtained his MBA from The John Olin School of Business at Washington University.
Tom’s clients represent a cross-section of locally owned businesses including contractors, manufacturers, restaurants, and unions. Tom has been married to Lisa Berra for 25 plus years and they are very proud of their children, Dominic (21), Michael (19), and Melina (17).
In 2016, Tom was elected President of the Crane Agency.
