As Thomas, Judy and Tucker’s mission states, “The source of our strength is our people”. Our partners and employees at TJT believe in giving back and do so by actively participating in a variety of charitable and civic community organizations. We serve in leadership positions on various boards and continue to give our talent, time and treasures to various churches, non- profit organizations and local schools. Some of these include Young Life, Red Cross, RLC Clinic for the Blind, Pack for a Purpose, United Way and the YWCA.
A Few Organizations We Support
History Founded in 1990
The Triangle-based CPA firm of Thomas, Judy & Tucker was founded in September of 1990 by Cliff Thomas, Chris Judy and David Tucker. Each of these gentlemen worked together previously at the Raleigh CPA firm of Smith, Allen & Hodge.
The firm’s first office was located at 16 Rowan Street in Raleigh. Diane Eller was the first employee of the firm and she started work on Tuesday, September 4th. Joette Crews joined the firm one week later. These ladies continue to work for the firm to this very day.
Gilbert Smith was a key advisor to the firm in its early days and was instrumental in bringing David Johnson to the firm in 1992. David was named partner in 1997. That same year David Tucker founded the outsource accounting division of the firm and continues to lead that department.
