Tom Janney, CPA, and president of Janney & Associates, CPAs, founded the company in October of 1989. Tom is a 1980 graduate of DeKalb County High School in Smithville, Tennessee. He graduated from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a degree in accounting in March of 1985 and became a certified public accountant in 1987.
Tom began his career with Arthur Andersen & Co in 1985 before returning to home to work at a local accounting firm in Smithville – literally going from what was then, the largest accounting firm in the world to probably one of the smallest. Tom made the change because he wanted to work more closely with individual and small business clients to help them achieve their financial goals and run their businesses more effectively. He greatly enjoys helping customers arrange their financial affairs in ways that relieve stress and help them focus on running their business.
Tom enjoys being involved in the local community, having served two terms as president of the Dekalb County Habitat for Humanity. He has also served as president of the Upper Cumberland Chapter of the Tennessee Society of CPAs and the Smithville-Dekalb County Chamber of Commerce. He also serves a variety of board of directors for charitable organizations. He is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and on the National Association of Tax Professionals.
