Personal Tony Passey. CEO, Founder, and always striving to be the best version of himself. When asked what he is good at he replied, “I am really good at being me. I am literally the best me I know. I can’t think of a better me. Also, funny.” A leadership example like this enables Firetoss to hire and cultivate employees that are self-confident and the very best at what they do. All humor aside, Tony’s background in marketing, experience as a business owner, and hands on knowledge as a professor directly contributes to the success and growth of Firetoss. A typical day for Tony doesn’t exist. He is someone who needs daily progress and constant change. He measures success based on the growth of the company, his employees and their skills, and what they can achieve for customers. Tony’s daily movement is a catalyst for change around the office, propelling us forward and improving our process. When Tony isn’t working you can find him riding dirt bikes in the middle of nowhere, getting lost in the desert or exploring someplace new and beautiful. He enjoys working with his hands and spending time with his family. He also claims he can turn a bottle into a piece of fruit. Stop by some time and he will show you. Tony is the father of 4 amazing children that are probably only amazing because of his wife, Sheila. She is the love of his life. PRofessional Tony also teaches at the University of Utah.
