Executive Leadership

Tom Kane

President & CEO

Tom was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts where he was discovered to be a talent in the creative arts. He was an amazing singer, rapper, producer, writer and performer.  Tom went on to get a record contract where he had a 15 year career in music, writing and acting. Tom’s entertainment career graduated to the business side where he began working for record labels and management firms on their marketing and advertising, even working for a huge and notable film company Radar Pictures, alongside film mogul Ted Field. Tom decided to go back to college where he earned his B.A. in Business Management and a minoring in financial accounting from the University of Southern Maine.  After graduating, he went on to sell advertising for professional sports, before later dabbling in his own entrepreneurial efforts and launching his own marketing company that specialized in social media marketing and national branding. One might assume Tom’s success in business led him to stray from his passion of music, but it hasn’t. As Tom still utilizes his musical talents in his free time to score films. After all the traveling and posh dining Tom was used to during his days in Hollywood, he has grown a passion also for both luxury Travel, outdoor hobbies and epicurean foods.

J.T. Zory

COO & EVP of Sales

JT Zory grew up in New York and later graduated high school in Houston Texas where he entertained several opportunities to accept football scholarships and play at the national level. He chose a different path and chose to join the US Army instead where he served proudly and with distinction with some of the bravest and most influential people to impact his life. While serving he acquired his BS degree in advertising and marketing and after his military service he excelled at sales and sales management at numerous successful organizations and has consistently been commended for the above average and exceptional level of professionalism he has demonstrated when providing service to his valued clients. JT spent many years as a top level e-commerce expert, sales trainer and business management consultant where he advised management staff on implementing effective sales processes, training sales staff, and creating and implementing advertising and marketing campaigns designed to maximize sales and ROI. JT later met Tom Kane through mutual business acquaintances and came on board to support their vision to make Food and Travel and Travel Outdoors magazines the best in the food and travel segments.
