Hi, I’m Tom.

 I started Beyond Your Exit Wealth Management with the sole purpose of changing the statistics above. My goal is to educate and empower owners on what actions need to be taken to position themselves for a successful business exit. The reality is every owner is going to exit their business—it’s just a matter of how and when. Whether you intend to sell your business to retire or sell your business to buy another and start a new venture, I'll get you to a place where you’ll have more flexibility and choices on what you'd like to do next.


Why Beyond Your Exit?

My role is to serve as a personal CFO to entrepreneurs as they transition to their next chapter. 

I'm here to provide you with the resources and planning necessary to prepare for your transition and create a life that brings you deep fulfillment. In working with me, you will also have access to additional financial and legal experts who will all play a crucial role in optimizing your transition. 


I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA).


As a fiduciary, I’m legally bound to put your best interests first at all times. And my fee structure helps to keep it that way.

Flat Fee

I don’t work for commissions—you will be charged a simple, easy-to-understand flat fee.


Being an independent firm means I’m not beholden to certain products. I search to find solutions tailored to your needs.
