Tom Harrison Headshot

Tom Harrison is the President and CEO of Corrigan Krause. He has a leadership hand in most goings-on in the organization. Because of this, his mind rarely shuts off. That’s a good thing for everyone at CK, as they’re able to pick his brain about consulting, practice development, succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, employee benefit fields, tax planning, and more. Tom’s more than 35 years of experience in these areas make him an invaluable asset to Corrigan Krause and to his clients, for whom he is passionate about reducing stress through well-organized, executable financial plans and procedures.

Tom is a Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) that builds on his years of experience and helps to better serve Corrigan Krause business-owner clients who are planning the next chapter of their personal and professional lives.

An Ohio State alumnus and avid sports fan, Tom frequents Buckeyes football games in the fall. In the spring, however, he can be found on the baseball field of Avon High School, where he is a Varsity Coach. He’s passionate about serving as a role model for the young people he comes in contact with through high school sports as well as the younger, less experienced staff at Corrigan Krause.

“It is imperative that owners begin to properly plan and strategize for their exit from their business almost from the day they acquire or become owners of their enterprise. This planning allows business owners to obtain the maximum value they deserve and the peace of mind that everything is effectively set for the next generation ownership of their most valuable asset – their business. Working with a CEPA provides the confidence that they are prepared for the financial, logistical and emotional aspects of their exit.”
