Tom Nicholas CPA Inc. PS started in 2008 when I had left a corporate position as a general manager with over 150 employees. I had originally been hired as the Chief Financial Officer 13 years earlier and had been through 2 major buyouts. Before starting the CPA Firm I looked at my experiences in my career that I enjoyed and decided that I truly enjoyed the financial side of business and enjoy assisting other people succeed.
I had earned my CPA certificate in 1983 and had worked 7 years in public accounting at an International CPA firm and a large local firm and have worked 20 years in the retail industry as a Chief Financial Officer/General Manager. I teamed up with Frank Chapman who had 50 years experience in the CPA industry, bought his book of business, but had him as a mentor for the next 5 years assisting me in the areas that I had light experience with.
Major thanks goes to my wife Cara and family for motivating me every year to be a better CPA.
