Tom Acomb

Chief Creative Executive, AOA

“Fail fast, fail often: it’s the only way to reach new frontiers. For Tom, new frontiers began with Walt Disney Imagineering and blaze on with AOA. Whether it’s live entertainment design, feature films, iconic architecture, or any of the other A-list projects AOA works on, Tom leads the greater team into new challenges with creative strategy and entertainment excellence.

Tom brings 30 years of experience in worldwide entertainment projects to each of AOA’s client endeavors. Disney, Universal Studios, Blackstone, Google, Facebook, Virgin, Marvel, Apple, and Coca-Cola are just a few of the Fortune 50 companies he and the team have worked with. And for more than 15 years, he led projects from concept to completion at Walt Disney Imagineering. International assignments? Been there, Disney’s Studio Park is among Tom’s repertoire. Cruise ships? Tom is proud to be a part of Disney Cruise Line’s genesis. He has more than a dozen Themed Entertainment Awards, recognition from Blooloop’s Top 50 Theme Park Influencers list, and experience in leadership and advisory board positions for industry-leading organizations.

Above all else, Tom is proud of the team they’ve been able to build at AOA. It’s the people, not the project, that turn client dreams into a reality. With a dash of real-world business skills and a ton of innovative thinking, Tom leads his team into new creative heights and professional greatness.”
