Davidson County Register of Deeds Karen Johnson has appointed Tom Sealy as her Chief Deputy. Previously the Chief Deputy of Information Technology, Sealy will now be the office’s second in command.

“Tom has had more than 30 years’ experience in the Register of Deeds Office, and he is responsible for bringing the operation into the digital age,” Johnson said. “We have worked diligently since I took office to make our operations more efficient and our administration more transparent, and Tom has been an integral part of those improvements. In particular, he has been instrumental in improving how we oversee the funds that pass through our office.

“Most importantly, he represents the level of professionalism and integrity that the people of Davidson County have come to expect from our office.”

A Nashville native, Sealy has worked in the Davidson County Register of Deeds office since 1982. As a systems administrator and analyst since 2004, he oversaw the adoption of a broad array of software that digitalized the office’s operation. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Belmont University and an Associate degree in Science from Volunteer State Community College.

“Since I assumed the office of Register of Deeds last September, I have relied heavily on Tom Sealy’s experience and in-depth knowledge of our office,” Johnson said.

“A public office is only as strong as the integrity of those who work there. I am proud to work with Tom Sealy and the rest of the professional staff that we have in the Davidson County Register of Deeds office.”
