Tom was a partner with Marilyn Hanna in Reid, Hanna, and Company LLP for 30 years, beginning November 1, 1983, when Tom and Marilyn acquired Tischhauser, Cooper, and Company. Ernie Tischhauser originally founded Tischhauser Cooper in 1955. Tom continues with Burns & Company working a less arduous schedule without firm administration responsibility.
Tom’s family moved to Ashland from Portland in 1955. He graduated from Ashland High School in 1965 and attended Oregon State University for three years. He returned to school at Southern Oregon College and began taking accounting and business courses. He graduated in 1971 and began work in Albany, Oregon, in the newspaper advertising business. He returned to Ashland in 1976 to take additional accounting and finance courses to prepare for the CPA exam. He began working as an intern for Tischhauser Cooper while attending SOC. After passing the exam and getting his certificate, he was offered the publisher’s position at the Ashland Daily Tidings, where he was employed until the 1983 purchase of the accounting practice.
