About Tom Katsilometes

Tom Katsilometes is a Pocatello native.  He has deep roots in the area as the Katsilometes family has been in Pocatello since the 1800s.

Tom is a businessman and practicing attorney and has experience in the private and public sectors including management, land development, water issues, and agriculture.  He has offices in Pocatello and Boise.

Tom has a proven track record of growth and improvements.  He has been involved to ensure the success of the construction of the Shoshone-Bannock Jr./Sr. High School in Fort Hall (1996), the creation of Century High School (1998), the Tribal Justice Center in Fort Hall, Idaho (2010), and the flagship Western States Caterpillar store in Pocatello (2016).

Like his late father, James G. “Jim” Katsilometes, Tom was educated in local schools, graduated from Pocatello High School, and attended Idaho State University.  Tom developed a strong sense of family values from a very young age.  His mother, Maria Katsilometes, is actively involved in the Pocatello community and church.  She is very passionate about gardening, cooking, music, and is a strong supporter of her church.

Recently, Tom’s family donated prime development land in Pocatello to a Veterans service organization to improve access to resources for our country’s heroes.

Tom led and coordinated those efforts and continues to work toward getting a Veterans’ complex built in Pocatello.

Tom has been with the love of his life, Katherine, for over 17 years.  Together they enjoy music, gardening, and outdoor sports including skiing, cycling, hiking, and tennis.

Tom meets with Vice Presidential Candidate, Governor Mike Pence and his wife Karen on September 1st, 2016 in Idaho.
