September Young Professionals Network #MonthlyMeetup
Come to our 2017/2018 kick-off meeting and meet other young professionals in the area. YPN#MonthlyMeetups are free and open to the public.
Dr. Tommy Ahlquist will be presenting.
Dr. Tommy Ahlquist knows to accomplish anything worthwhile you have to be a doer and not a talker. He has lived by this principle in his work as a small businessman, emergency room doctor, father and leader in the community. He is also running for Governor of Idaho in 2018.
Tommy has spent his entire professional career in Idaho. He is best known for transforming the corner of 8th and Main from a 25-year hole in downtown Boise to the Zion’s Bank Building, now the tallest building in Idaho. Over the last 10 years, Tommy has built over 2 million square feet of commercial property across Idaho.
Tommy is an entrepreneur at heart. He has started several successful small businesses in Idaho including a pharmacy, primary care clinic and the national med-tech company Stat Pads.
As an ER doctor in Idaho, Tommy has improved people’s lives, caring for over 40,000 patients. During this time, he was inspired to help create FACES of Hope Victim’s Center after seeing the desperate need for community services for victims of abuse and neglect. In 2015 and 2016 alone, the organization helped over 3,000 women and children.
As a community leader, Tommy has served on the Boise Chamber Board of Directors, the President’s Board of Directors for Boise State University, the United Way Treasure Valley Board, the American Heart Association Board, Together Treasure Valley and is President of the FACES Foundation of Idaho. He also is on the YMCA’s Comprehensive Campaign Cabinet and recently co-founded the Treasure Valley Leadership Alliance and Idaho 2020: Investing in Idaho’s Future.
