Getting tomorrow’s entrepreneurs on the road to success

Tom Tworoger, D.B.A. knows what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.  He spent 22 years building his company, Kenworth Truck of South Florida, into a world leader in sales for Kenworth.  Tworoger applied the strategies he teaches in his classes to  expand his business to four locations in South Florida, become the first U.S. dealer to sell Japanese medium-duty trucks, and eventually sell his $130 million company to Freightliner Corporation, a division of Daimler Chrysler.  “As an automotive dealer, I was involved in at least six different types of businesses ranging from service to sales,” said Tworoger.  “Those experiences allow me to relate to many different industries.”

Tworoger joined NSU in 2000 and directs the entrepreneurship concentration in the MBA program and the entrepreneurship minor in the undergraduate program.  He was recognized with the Excellence in Teaching award in 2005 and enjoys the challenge of teaching to the different learning styles of the students in his classes.   A sports enthusiast, Tworoger enjoys surfing, snow and water-skiing, scuba diving, fishing, spinning and competes in 5K runs and sprint triathlons.
