Words from Business Reporter Tom Heath

Tom shared his experiences interviewing some of the biggest icons of the business world like Louis Gerstner Jr., IBM, Mort Zuckerburg, CEO of Boston Properties, Time Inc.'s Norman Pearlstine and others.  Mr. Heath talked about the traits he thinks separates successful entrepreneurs from the rest of the pack.  He also shared his advice for cooperating with the press when the students are in a position to grant interviews at a point in their careers. 

Mr. Heath previously wrote about the business of sports for The Post’s sports section for most of a decade. He has also covered local news, including the Maryland General Assembly and investigative work in Fairfax county, and served as a correspondent for Newsweek and The Post.  Heath was born and raised in Syracuse, N.Y., where he attended Catholic schools.
