Thomas S. Ho, Vice President
Thomas S. Ho began serving a two-year term as Vice President of the USTA in January 2013. He currently serves on the Budget Committee and the Compensation Committee. Previously, he was as a Director at Large on the USTA Board of Directors, 2009-10, serving during that term as the board liaison to the Player Development Council and as a member of the Audit Committee.
 
At 15 years old, Ho became the youngest men’s player ever to compete at the US Open. After a nine-year professional career, he was forced to retire due to chronic back injuries in 1997. Ho achieved a career-high ranking of No. 85 in singles and No. 13 in doubles, and he won four doubles titles during his career. He advanced to the semifinals in doubles at Roland Garros in 1995 and qualified for the Doubles Masters later that year. A heralded junior player, he was named Junior Tennis Player of the Year by both World Tennis magazine (1988) and Tennis magazine (1985 and 1987). In 2011, Ho, who grew up in Winter Haven, Fla., was inducted into the Florida Tennis Hall of Fame.
 
Following his playing career, Ho earned a B.A. in economics in 2001 from Rice University, where he was Phi Beta Kappa and served as a volunteer assistant with the tennis team. After graduation, he worked as a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs and later joined UBS Wealth Management as a high net worth financial advisor. Currently, Ho is an associate principal with Heidrick and Struggles, a worldwide executive search firm, where he is a member of the global financial services and industrial practice.
 
Ho lives in Houston with his wife, Marcelle, and two children, Braeden and McHaley. He is a member of the USTA Texas Section.
