About Tom Little
Tom Little is the President of Smart Vent Products Inc, Floodproofing.com, Smart Product Innovations and Risk Reduction Plus Group. He is a Certified Floodplain Manager and Licensed Insurance Broker
Since 2004, Tom has studied the science of flood mitigation with a concentration on wet and dry floodproofing techniques, and their ability to not only protect structures against the devastating effects of floodwaters but also how these systems and approaches can reduce flood insurance costs for property owners. Taking this knowledge, Tom became a Certified Floodplain Manager and Licensed Insurance Broker to help him further lend his expertise. Today he is proud to lead a diverse team of 40 professionals that are passionate about creating more disaster-resilient communities.
The success of the Smart Vent product line helped the company see first-hand the opportunities and needs for more innovative products and services when dealing with flood disasters. Tom took this insight and was an integral part in creating Smart Product Innovations—an umbrella company that would oversee the founding of companies such as RRPG and Floodproofing.com. This collection of companies was strategically created to specialize in flood disasters, providing products and services to help with all aspects of flood mitigation and protection.
