Tom Seery is the founder and CEO of RealSelf, the leading online resource to learn about aesthetic procedures and connect with the doctors who provide them. Tom founded RealSelf in 2006, after seeing a consumer need for transparency and unbiased information in the aesthetics industry.

Today, RealSelf attracts millions of unique visitors each month and facilitates millions of patient-doctor connections every year. Powered by a growing community of patients who share their personal experiences, industry experts committed to providing comprehensive, vetted information, and a network of verified doctors and providers, RealSelf helps people make smart, confident decisions about self-improvement.

Under Tom’s leadership, RealSelf has raised $42 million in funding to date from investors such as Andy Hunt, the co-founder of Warby Parker; Rich Barton, founder of Expedia, Zillow and Glassdoor; Mike Slade, an early Apple executive and co-founder of venture capital firm Second Avenue Partners; and Barney Harford, former COO of Uber and former CEO of Orbitz.

Among his colleagues and employees, Tom is known for his connection to and advocacy for the consumer, as well as his strong relationships in the medical aesthetics community. He leads a team of executives who set strategy and operate the company, and spends significant time speaking to employees at all levels and functions.

Prior to RealSelf, Tom was an executive at Expedia, where he developed a $500 million private-label travel business, and was an early expert in search engine marketing long before Google was a household name. Tom sits on the board of ReSurge International, a nonprofit that is building reconstructive surgery capacity in developing countries. He holds a master’s of science from Drexel University, an MBA from the University of Washington, and a bachelor’s degree from Connecticut College.
