Mid-Century Modern Rescue rescues, restores, and re sells items from the 1950’s and 1960’s. While furniture remains the main focus of the business, past rescues have included everything from complete vintage kitchens to classic cars. His passion for rescuing and preserving lines up very well with the mission of MPF. He welcomes the opportunity to give back to the community that has given their family so much and helping to ensure the same experience for generations to follow.

Lookout and is a lifelong Cincinnatian.  He has lived in Mariemont with his wife Holly since 2006.   He moved the business he founded, Walsh Asset Management, to Mariemont Square in 2010.  Tom is passionate about teaching and has manifested that in roles as a Visiting Instructor of Finance at Miami University (2000-02), advising the Green Envy Club at Mariemont High School (2008-13), and coaching junior high basketball for both the Mariemont Recreation Association and Mariemont Junior High School (2013-18).  He is a current board member of the Cincinnati USA Sports Commission and the Mariemont Area Chamber of Commerce.  Tom is excited about the opportunity to serve our great community further on the MPF Board.
