Chief Financial Officer
Working across departments for an upscale grocer throughout high school and college, Tom learned the importance of customer service and attention to detail. Tom has years of experience working with and for family-owned businesses in California, Washington, D.C., and Minnesota, so his transition to Kowalski's was a natural one. Tom received his bachelor's degree from Santa Clara University and is a CPA. He spent the first part of his career working for a public accounting firm advising fast-growing companies on business, accounting and tax matters. Then after working as a CFO with experience in financing, strategic planning and business development, Tom joined Kowalski's in 2012. With a passion for business growth, Tom enjoys the opportunities and challenges that come with being a market-leading retailer.
