Tom Mount is a technical diver and cave diver. In 1991 Tom Mount joined Dick Rutkowski in the new organisation formed by Rutkowski, IANTD, dedicated to teaching Nitrox to recreational divers. In 1992 Mount was named President and Chief Executive Office of IANTD, a position that he held until 2005. Mount was also one of the pioneers in relation to diver training and development of dive tables in relation to the use of trimix as a breathing gas for diving.
