Will Toms is all of the above but first and foremost he's a creator. We admire this Philadelphia native's track record of creating spaces to help creatives harness their powers. As the Co-Founder & Chief Creative Officer of REC Philly, Will and his partner Dave Silver have grown REC to almost 20 employees and raised over $3M dollars to scale their socially-driven business model from a warehouse in North Philadelphia to a state-of-the-art facility in Center City. Will’s vision is to scale REC’s model of “a gym membership for creatives” to span across international communities, establishing a network of 100,000 independent creators that all have access to the resources, strategies, and opportunities necessary to own their future.
