Thomas is a problem solver by nature, which is why he was drawn to accounting with an emphasis in tax planning and compliance. He received his Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from California State University, Sacramento, and his Master of Business Taxation from the University of Southern California. Before joining BKD, Thomas spent several years as a Senior Tax Manager at a Big Four accounting firm in Los Angeles. He then went on to serve as a Tax Director for an international conglomerate and then a Senior Tax Advisor for a multinational Fortune 100 company. Throughout his career, Thomas has traveled extensively, both domestically and internationally, which he cites as having innumerable and profound personal and professional benefits.
Thomas has frequently spoken on tax panels for various industry groups and has been published in leading tax journals. He was fortunate to have been appointed by the Governor of California, which he credits to opening several life-changing opportunities. Thomas attributes much of his success to having great mentors throughout his career.
