Tommy Lather - Takeoff Monkey - Professional Construction Takeoff Services

Tommy Lather


Tommy has worked in the landscape construction world since he was eligible for a work permit at the age of 15 in Clarksville, Maryland. By age 18, Tommy was operating his own business performing landscape & hardscape projects in excess of $50k for homeowners & HOAs throughout the Baltimore-DC metro area. In 2007 Tommy relocated to Austin, TX where he worked as a top account manager for a national re-wholesale nursery, and then as Senior Estimator for a L&L Top 100 Landscape Construction & Maintenance Firm.

During his role as Senior Estimator, the seed for Takeoff Monkey was planted. Years of living the chaotic & stressful pre-construction life – Tommy knew there was a faster, easier way. In 2017, Tommy relocated to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to be closer to his family. Initially working for a couple of local construction contractors, the basis for Takeoff Monkey was further validated. Fast-forward to 2019, Takeoff Monkey was founded.

If you ask – Tommy will tell you that his passion for the industry lies in its people. Working as Founder & CEO of Takeoff Monkey affords Tommy the opportunity to meet and interact with hundreds of contractors throughout the country – and he couldn’t be happier! In his spare time, you can find Tommy in a kayak on a lake, or occasionally in a tree stand. Tommy enjoys spicy food, sour gummy worms, super early mornings, and animals.
