District Governor Victor Tom is a past president and a member of the Rotary Club of Bedford. He joined the Bedford Club in 2006, becoming a third-generation Rotarian following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. He served as his Club's president in 2009 and again in 2014 (for four months). He has served numerous roles in District 7910.
Victor also has a keen interest in mentoring our youth. He has been an instructor at our district's annual RYLA events, and has established and advises the Rotaract Club of MIT.  For six years, he also served as chair of District 7910's Bandey-Hefler Fellowship for a Rotary exchange between our District and two Districts southwest of London.
Professionally, Victor received his BS, MS, and ScD from MIT in electrical engineering and computer science with a specialization in computer vision. Dr. Tom is currently a chief scientist at BAE Systems, FAST Labs in Burlington, MA. He is helping to solve critical defense problems. 
In non-defense work, Victor helped win the America’s Cup in 1992 and developed the first practical pitch-tracking system for Major League Baseball. The system revolutionized the way umpires call balls and strikes.
