After graduating with honors from Wright State University in 1981, Tom Giere gained valuable accounting experience with a Fortune 500 company and then entered public accounting in 1984 as a manager in the tax department of an international firm. He joined Nolan Giere & Company in 1989 and was named a partner and owner in 1992. Upon the merger with FHF in 2021, Tom joined the FHF team.
Tom primarily works in tax planning and compliance for businesses and individuals. With his experience and education, which includes a Master of Science degree in taxation from the University of Cincinnati, he helps clients analyze and implement complex tax strategies to minimize the impact of federal, state and local taxes. Tom also works extensively in estate and gift tax, succession planning, management consulting, business advisory and strategic planning.
Tom is excited about the opportunities that the merger with FHF provided his team and clients. “The additional tax and accounting services that are now available allows us to provide a full scope of services to our clients which is very beneficial.”
Outside of work, Tom is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants. He is an officer and actively involved with the Troy Rotary Club and is a member of the Governing Board of the Troy Foundation.
When Tom isn’t busy helping his clients, you can find him enjoying the outdoors by hiking various trails or cycling.
