Honest, ambitious CPA with a robust work ethic; excellent interpersonal and organizational skills; and an ability to problem solve both creatively and logically are the cornerstone attributes of Sampson Morris Group’s CFO, Tom Dixon. Tom joined Sampson Morris Group in 2011 as Chief Accounting Officer, bringing 15 years of progressive experience to the company. Tom oversaw the accounting functions, implemented best practices, and streamlined processes. His focus was on analyzing and delivering timely, accurate, and useful financial information to fellow executive team members.
As CFO, Tom is directly responsible for the overall financial management of the company. His workload includes approving potential tenants, corporate compliance, tax reporting, analyzing financial statements, and providing forecasting and planning to ensure strategic decisions are made for 100+ entities. Flexible by nature and a result-driven executive, Tom delivers value beyond financial statements. He functions as a collaborative leader while providing mentorship and guidance to his team and the organization to ensure the recruitment and retainment of top talent for the corporate finance team. Tom’s strengths of leading with integrity, managing with compassion and his drive to succeed is why his promotion to CFO in 2022 was a natural course.
Tom’s skillset within the organization has been enhanced by many invaluable experiences in his personal life. Tom’s love of traveling was spurred when he received a full fine arts scholarship to Duquesne University that provided him the opportunity to travel to 47 states and providences of Canada.
Community is an integral part of Tom’s life, as he serves as the chair of his church’s finance council and is a regular volunteer for many community events.
Tom has a strong entrepreneurial drive, and has converted his passion of home renovation projects into a business. Together with his wife, they have developed a portfolio of rental properties and a house renovation company. While Tom enjoys life in an urban environment, he does not miss an opportunity to embrace his outdoor passions of hunting and fishing.
