R. Thomas Fuller, CPA, PFS

Certified Public Accountant, Financial Advisor

R. Thomas “Tom” Fuller, CPA, is a founding partner of Fuller, Frost & Associates, CPAs and also serves his clients further as a financial advisor who specializes in business and tax planning with Fuller, Frost, Lanier Wealth Management, LLC. Tom has a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in accounting.  He develops deep personal relationships with clients and considers his clients his friends, and his goal is always the same: tax planning to avoid mistakes and to minimize the client’s overall taxes.

Tom began his accounting career with Henderson Shaw, CPAs, where he became a partner in 1980. Later that year, he launched a solo practice, but was soon joined in late 1981 by Rabun Frost, CPA, and Tony Hauff, CPA, which led to the formation of Fuller, Frost and Hauff, CPAs. Today, Tom is in charge of the tax section for Fuller, Frost and Associates, CPAs.

Tom is very active in his community, participating in many organizations and holding positions of leadership. One of Tom’s favorite community contributions comes around annually when he gives back to the community by playing Santa Claus. For a number of years, he has been Santa for the Martinez-Evans Christmas Parade sponsored by the Merchants Association of Columbia County. He has also been involved professionally by teaching various accounting and ethics courses, published articles on professional ethics, and even serving as an expert witness on various matters in State Court, Superior Court and Family Court.

Away from the office, Tom likes to spend time at his log cabin in Maggie Valley, N.C., that he built with help from friends. An avid woodworker, he enjoys time in his workshop where he turns raw wood into objects of art. For fun, he enjoys scuba diving and counts Cozumel, Key West and the Caymans among his favorite places to dive. He and his wife, Carol, have two sons and four grandchildren, to whom he is “Papa.”
