About Thomas Vozzo

Thomas Vozzo was a successful corporate leader with a reputation for results. But decades into his career, he began to feel like something was missing – a thought that would eventually lead him to become the Chief Executive Officer at Homeboy Industries, the largest gang rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. For more than 34 years, Homeboy Industries has been a beacon of hope in Los Angeles, providing training and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated individuals, helping them to heal and redirect their lives.

A decade into his executive leadership role at Homeboy Industries – Vozzo is also the author of “The Homeboy Way: A Radical Approach to Leadership and Life.” Written with heartfelt authenticity and purpose, Vozzo invites corporate America and leaders everywhere to create a new bottom line, challenge the corporate status quo – and combat injustice, economic and racial inequity.

In his free time, Thomas enjoys hiking, ocean swimming, travelling, and spending time with his family.
