Tom Padgett's Child Custody Case
Presston Associates professional evaluation of Tom Padgett
PRESSTON ASSOCIATES P.O. BOX 3122 FARMINGTON HILLS, MI. 48333 (313)855-2387 January 31, 1996 Mr. Milton C. Toby Perch & Toby 3070 Harrodsburg Road Suite 240 Lexington, Kentucky 40503 Re; Thomas C. Padgett Dear Mr. Toby, As requested I have completed a evaLuation or the employment income potential of Mr. Padgett. HISTORY Analysis of a resume depicting the background of Mr. Padgett reveals a very successful ninteen year hotel management career up until early 1994. Mr. Padgett had been recognized frequently with promotions and significant salary increases during that period of time. Such history is typical of proper educational preparation and and performance of assignments producing upward progressive recognition. FUTURE Mr. Padgett's current resume reveals a significant "GAP" in his career track beginning January 1994. Any less than astute executive recruiter would question why he moved from Southfield,Michigan to Detroit,Michigan in early 1994. Why he wasn't retained upon sale of the hotel in Detroit in January 1994? What took him into the consulting arena? A large number of "consultants" are relegated to that status to account for a period of time between positions. Mr. Padgett is a 46 year old having attained a significant earnings status in a industry where younger executives with acceptable credentials could be recruited at far less salary and benefits.
Padgett..........page 2 The growth in his career industry is fair to stagnant at present with current managers striving to maintain existing salary levels and positions. CONCLUSION It would be accurate to conclude that Mr. Padgett's future earnings potential from continuation of choosen career and industry is guarded and probably dismal. It should be noted that this conclusion, based on the facts of record, is in charp contrast to projections by a Mr. Hank Hinton whereby he suggest Mr. Padgett has "a significant income potential". There appears to have been some unusual out-side inter- ference in this progressive career. Based on conversations with Mr. Padgett and careful review of factual documents, one must conclude that impact was caused by a unfriendly and non-traditional entity which in many professional corners is regarded as cultic. Unfortunately, this negative influence will no doubt continue until cognizant authority stays with expected intervention. These conclusions on Mr. Padgett's career status are presented based on: over twenty-five years as a human resource executive for two major multi-nationl corp- orations; during which experience I recruited, interviewed and retained many executive candidates; from that process hundreds of resumes were reviewed and careers analyzed as a routine; taught human resources at college level, and coalesced with and since 1985 as a practicing Arbitrator and human resource consultant. If I can provide further analysis or commentary, please advise. Sincerly, <signature> G. Preston Doom Encls. 1341996
