The Boss: Tom Oyen
Note: Given the absolute certainty that Tom will be reading this, and the scarcity of job opportunities in these recessionary times, this
particular web page has been very carefully edited.
Originally a partner in the business, sole owner since 1985 and President/CEO since incorporation in 1995, Tom Oyen has been doing this for a
long, long time. A voracious student of chimney factoids and hearth-related lore, and a veteran of every facet of the hearth products business from
the chimney top down, Tom is the go-to guy whenever there's a problem nobody can solve (although this doesn't happen very often, given the
surpassing competence of the experienced, conscientious and vastly underpaid Chimney Sweep office staff and crew).

Although Tom doesn't get out in the field much anymore,
he still wears the traditional Sweep color.
These are his "summer blacks".
