Tom Sulewski

CPA | Shareholder

About

Tom may well be our biggest fan. He has been at Clark Nuber since graduating and has built an incredible career for himself.

In all these years, is his proudest moment becoming our first home-grown shareholder or meeting his wife, a fellow Clark Nuber employee? Either way, we’ve been a part of it, and we’re proud.

As the shareholder in charge of the firm’s audit practice, Tom exemplifies a keen sense of project management as well as an ability to analyze and explain profit opportunities for his clients. The camaraderie of the 75 + people he works with is what motivates Tom every day and ultimately reminds him why he loves working at Clark Nuber. A focus on people and their professional development has allowed the audit practice to triple in size and bring greater value to our clients under his tenure as Audit Department Head.
