Message From CEO/President

Greetings! Thank you for your interest in Thomas & Reed, LLC(T&R). Welcome to our website. On behalf of our employees, we invite you to explore our website to learn more about what we do. In many ways, Thomas & Reed, LLC has been distinct from day one in that we have always tried to keep our overhead low through a unique business model and rate pricing. This allows us to provide a quality product at very affordable rates within the market space. All of the services we provide to our clients rely on the commitment of our business partners and community leaders. Established in 2002, Thomas & Reed, LLC has been servicing the Indiana business and governmental community for over a decade. This longevity is contributed to the following factors:

• All of our staff and board members are committed to maintaining healthy long term business relationships. This is achieved by adding value at a fair price to our clients coupled with timely agreed upon quality deliverables.

• As a Company, we are committed to community involvement throughout the Indianapolis metropolitan area. One of our core principles as an organization since the inception is give back to the community and State in which we serve.

• We look at our employees as the Company's most valuable assets. This allows for lower case turnover, better trained and committed employees. The above bullets are not meant to over simplify things but I've come to learn from practicing in public accounting over a decade, many times keeping it simple is just flat out better.

All the best in your future endeavors,

Stephen A. Reed, CPA, MBA
