Thomas D. Sellers was born in Detroit in 1933 and has always called Michigan his home. In 1956, he earned bachelor’s degrees in business administration and art history from Albion College in nearby Albion, Michigan.
Upon graduation, Tom spent three years honing his business skills as an employee of the Burroughs Corporation. He teamed up with his father in 1959 at the Dean Sellers Ford agency. In 1970, he purchased the firm outright and eventually moved it to a new location in Troy, Michigan, where it has become a highly respected industry leader. Under his leadership, the firm has grown to be the largest Ford dealership in the state of Michigan.
Tom has long worked to build a better appreciation of the importance of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and to educate Americans about their true meaning. He has also been active in a variety of civic affairs, especially the Troy Rotary Club.
He became a member of The John Birch Society in 1977 and accepted appointment to the JBS Council in 1985. He and his wife, Nona, reside in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
