Thomas Lillie
Director
 

As a Director at Lewis & Knopf, CPAs, P.C., Tom enjoys working with clients who are interested in growing their business and personal wealth. Tom helps clients to first establish goals, objectives, and risk tolerances and then assists them with planning and proper implementation. Tom works with businesses in a variety of industries, including real estate, retail and wholesale, professional services, and construction. In addition to his assurance and tax planning responsibilities, Tom heads up the firm’s Financial Planning Division. In working with his clients, Tom ascribes to the old IBM adage, “We don’t solve problems, we overwhelm them.”

Tom maintains very active involvement in several community organizations for a variety of reasons – specifically so he can have a positive impact on the community that he lives and works in. He currently serves in various capacities for the Flint Institute of the Arts, including as a member of the board of trustees and the development and exhibition committees. In addition, Tom is a member of the investment committee for the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
