Spotlight On: Tom Fagan

By Shylo Bisnett on Dec 6, 2020 9:30:00 AM

Senior Analyst and Sales Manager at Azavar

It’s been five years since Tom Fagan joined the Azavar team. And with more than 200 signed municipal partnerships under his belt, he consistently inspires all of us to do more, try harder, and sing louder.

From quite an early age, Tom performed professionally on stage and screen. He’s full of anecdotes from his life treading the boards, and brings that same polish to his work today. In his twenties, Tom made the transition from the actor’s life into hospitality management, then billings/contract management.

[Checklist] Are You Getting Short-Changed?

By Shylo Bisnett on Oct 5, 2020 6:43:24 PM

Review these tell-tale signs that your municipality is missing out on critical tax revenues—and learn how to fix it fast.

Sometimes, it’s easy to identify a revenue leak. There’s a steady, annoying drip-drip-drip of funds draining away your budget’s potential. But at other times, leaks aren’t quite so obvious. Revenue leaders might suspect there’s a problem but lack the time or resources to do the research needed to identify the source.
