Thomas Phillip O'Neill III (1945-) leads a public relations and government affairs firm called O'Neill and Associates in Boston. He is the son of Tip O'Neill, who served as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1977 to 1987.

From 1975 to 1983, O'Neill served as lieutenant governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. During his term of office, O'Neill created and administered the Office of Federal-State Relations in Boston and Washington, D.C.. During this time he also served on the U.S. State Department Ambassadorial Screening Committee. Prior to becoming lieutenant governor, O’Neill served as a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. O'Neill is known for his work on behalf of the Big Dig[1], a project with which his father was instrumentally involved.

O'Neill sits on the Board of Trustees for Boston College and chairs the Board of Trustees of North Cambridge Catholic High School, having graduated from both. O'Neill received his bachelor’s degree from Boston College and earned his Master’s in public administration from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
