Tom Greenbaum

Tom was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 31, 1956. After graduating from the University School in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Tom attended Emory University where he graduated number one in his class from the School of Business in 1978 and then went on to receive his MBA from NYU. Tom was admitted into the two-year Executive Training Program at Merrill Lynch in New York City.


Thereafter, Tom moved to Atlanta where he raised his two children, Malinda and Caroline. Tom was very active in the Atlanta community in both his personal and professional life and, within a few short years, became a top stockbroker at Merrill Lynch. Years later, Tom moved to Morgan Stanley as a Senior Vice President where he was ranked as one of the top financial advisors in the nation. He continued with a high level of excellence in his position until he retired at the age of 50.


After retirement, Tom moved to Palm Beach, Florida, where he became very involved in the local community, including the Alpert Jewish Family and Children's Service, the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, the Palm Beach Film and Television Institute, the town's Department of Planning, Zoning & Building, and the board of WXEL PBS for the Palm Beaches.


Tom was an outstanding pianist with the talent to improvise and play music by ear. He loved to entertain and would often ask you to name any song, and he would play it right before your eyes! He was also a talented athlete with a passion for golf and tennis. He was a member of the Banyan Golf Club, and a former member of the Palm Beach Country Club and Atlanta Country Club. Tom loved people and prided himself on generosity and humility. He dedicated his life to his children and was truly unique in every way. He is missed by many.
