Tom Merrifield - Tom has more than 20 years of entrepreneurial experience and is passionate about taking businesses from the, “you know what would make a great business” stage to operational maturity. Tom founded RimPro, an alloy wheel repair and refinishing company and holds a patent (US10427774) for the repair of damaged wheels. After selling RimPro, Tom started D-Force Wheels, a custom lightweight wheel for BMWs and Mazda Miatas. Tom brings a relentless focus on operational efficiency and the ability to spot potential future pitfalls before they happen to Faithful Parking. Tom is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
In 2018, Tom, his wife and their five children sold their home and began traveling North America full-time in their RV along with Walt the Copilot Dog. Tom has definitely proven that it is possible to ignite the rubber from a BMW tire when doing a “burn out.” (Take that, Mythbusters!)
Philip Pietrowski, Jr. - Philip has been in the IT industry for more than 20 years and is one of those odd people that love looking at business challenges and crafting software solutions. Although the term “geek” may be appropriate, he prefers “IT stud.” Philip founded and grew The Hinckley Group, an IT services business and has been a leader in several other firms before founding Faithful Parking with Tom and Timm. He is a graduate of Harvard University and a service-disabled Army veteran (10th Mountain Division, LI).
Philip’s only experience with RVing was in 1983 when he spent a very rainy weekend on Cape Cod with his parents, brother and sisters in a pop-up camper. Through years of therapy, he’s managed to move beyond the experience and is open to giving it another try.
Timm Piper - Timm and his family frequently travel in their teardrop RV and was the person to approach Tom & Philip with the idea of connecting the RV community with faith-based organizations.
