Thomas Cormier, CPA, CGMA, Principal, is a long time resident of Southeast Texas. He obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree from Lamar University and began working at the public accounting firm of Cavett Turner. This engagement was brief, however, as he then accepted the position of Chief Financial Officer at Market Basket Food Stores, where he began managing the financial and business affairs of the local retail supermarket chain, for more than 27 years.
In addition, Thomas is the owner of Cormier Homes, the developer and builder of the Westwood Village and The Heights subdivisions in Lumberton, Texas, the Sterling Ridge community in Nederland, TX, and the Dominion Ranch community in Mid County. Not an individual to be limited to a singular purpose, Thomas also plays a key role as Principal of Albanese Cormier Holdings, LLC, headquartered in Beaumont, Texas. His varied background compliments this experienced management team, composed of other Principals, Michael and Eldon Albanese. The ACH partnership currently owns, manages and leases real estate holdings in excess of 4.5 million square feet in 22 states across the country, including retail shopping centers, industrial properties, a Class-A office tower, multiple land parcels and residential communities.
True to his financial background and extensive expertise, Thomas oversees all monetary aspects of the Albanese Cormier Holdings, LLC organization and assists with the company’s various acquisitions and development projects.
Thomas will always consider his family to be his greatest achievement. He and his wife of 35 years, Melinda with their two daughters, Samantha and Tabitha, are members of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Port Neches. They remain faithful to their Southeast Texas upbringings by volunteering with church and civic organizations and focusing on the betterment and revitalization of our communities.
