There are things bout Thad Pryor that might surprise you—specifically, you might be a little startled to learn just how far his professional journey has led him, and how different his role with Children of America is from where he started his professional life. Nowadays, he proudly wears the titles of President and CEO, and is respected as a vital and innovative figure in the child development industry. But back in the day, Thad Pryor was—a martial artist? Well, yes, actually; former holder of the Super Middleweight Kick Boxing Champion of the World title, Thad Pryor is nothing if not eclectic in his interests, and his championship win just goes to show that success is something he insists upon in all of his career endeavors!
And success certainly seems to be in the cards for Thad Pryor as far as his Children of America work goes. To this provider of high-quality childcare, he brings more than two decades of innovation and leadership experience. And he brings ambition, as well; upon joining the company Thad Pryor unveiled an audacious plan to expand from 40 locations into a whopping 330, a plan he’s putting into action one piece at a time; thus far, a three-year commitment to branch into 75 locations is moving along according to schedule.
Naturally, such a sprawling plan takes a fair bit of Thad Pryor’s time and imagination, but, when he’s not overseeing the creation of new childcare centers, he remains involved with a couple of other business ventures. A genuine entrepreneur, Thad Pryor launched a film company, World Films, Inc., in 2005; he is also an advisor for the mobile marketing company 3Cinteractive. His work in advancing the field of childcare is what he is most passionate about, however—something that’s plainly visible in his ongoing efforts to make Children of America the very best that is can be.
