After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Tom founded Simon/Meyer, LLC in Charlotte with Jack Grubbs and consulted with Molly and Tony Vincent to found Simon/Meyer, LLC in Atlanta. All three locations have maintained that mission of servicing the lending industry. Since that time our services and industry base have greatly expanded.
