His industry experience includes SaaS, manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, automotive, and more.

Before joining Amplēo in 2024, Tom’s specialty was accounting for M&A transactions – specifically, leading companies through the accounting process that follows an acquisition (“purchase accounting”).

More recently, Tom’s focus has turned to serving small businesses – acting as a trusted advisor to help them unlock financial insights and make more informed decisions.
