Brian Thomas, Owner
This is the best job ever. The team here is so talented and hardworking, it makes me proud every day. I never had the intention of going into the visual marketing field. I grew up in western KY and southern IN. During this time, my work consisted of customer service oriented duties. My education in the biology field had me directed toward an environmental based occupation. After a relocation to middle TN, I found management training and myself back in the customer service field. Looking to take control of my own life, I realized “being my own boss” was the answer. With the help of family and friends, the “sign business” seemed like the answer. A Signs Now franchise was purchased in 2006 and then the purchase of Hawkeye Signmakers and its makeover was next. The “shop” was located in Hendersonville and it was moved into a new location, with new equipment. This business is ever changing, and new experiences are always present. One of these was the acquisition of Nashville Signs in 2014. The combination of these two companies is phenomenal. It expanded the services that can now be offered. This combination needed a new “name” that would represent all of this experience. In 2015, we became Image360/Hendersonville. We have worked hard to continue the evolution as the area leader in signage and graphic solutions.
I currently live in Sumner County- Gallatin, with my wife-Margaret and my son-Easton. We are invested in the community and absolutely adore the Middle TN area.
I am so thankful for all my blessings, my family, my team, the community and the support of great customers-existing and future.
