Tom Black might not be a household name in the Springfield area, but he's definitely had a local impact.
Black came here from Kansas to attend Missouri State University and join the debate team. There he met future local standouts like Chamber President Jim Anderson and Attorney Tom Strong.
Although Black now lives in Nashville, Tenn., he still maintains connections here, including a business in Republic. Bancsource, a banking equipment sales and service company, has around 400 employees, compared to the 27 workers there when he bought the company in 2001.
Black also has a strong relationship with Missouri State, supporting the debate team and other ventures on campus. He is a 1973 graduate who still visits Springfield about once a month when he can.
...
Black is a big name in the business world now, but he started from very humble beginnings. The first years of Black's life in Nickerson, Kan., were spent living out of a boxcar his parents had converted into a semi-livable space.
...
Black is the author of "The Boxcar Millionaire" which chronicles his life, from his youth through his adult successes.
If there was just a single thing to take away from the book, it's that Black doesn't consider excuses an option.
"There are two kinds of people - the ones who make a way and the ones who make an excuse," he says.
The true sales experts are the ones who don't let roadblocks stop them, he says.
In the business world, he's well known as a communicator. But there's also another side to Black - he's a renowned wine collector.
His collection began when his first boss told him he'd need to learn about wine. At a sales lunch, the salesman would be expected to understand a wine list and properly order for the table, Black was told.
"I started reading at first," he says. "I didn't have any money to buy."
But eventually, as his sales grew, he started collecting little by little. Now he writes about wine and boasts a personal collection of more than 20,000 bottles.
Although his first motivations were material, Black says his drive now comes from the challenge.
"I think now it's just the idea of building something that has value and the idea of creating new wealth for other people and giving back. I don't want to sound too goody-goody, but that is a big factor for me," he says.
