Drummonds has served as Managing Partner and CEO of LBMC since 2015. Since then, he has led the firm’s robust growth and continued expansion into additional service lines and spearheaded several key acquisitions. During Drummonds’ tenure as CEO, the firm has expanded from 450 to more than 750 team members and received numerous regional and national distinctions, including the prestigious Accounting Today Top 100 Firm and Pacesetter for Growth recognitions. Drummonds previously served as practice leader of the firm’s tax division. He has also been named a Power Leader in Finance and a Top 100 Financial Influencer in the Nation.
The Power 100 list represents business leaders who have the greatest influence on Nashville’s businesses, professionals and economy, and the Industry Giants lead the most powerful companies in town, based on high-profile reputation or top-of-the-market success.
To assemble the Most Admired CEO list, the Nashville Business Journal took nominations from the public. Nominees were grouped into categories based on their company size and type, and then were asked to vote on one another.
“I am honored to receive these distinctions, which would not be possible without the dedication of our outstanding team members who continued to persevere during extraordinary times over the last year,” said Drummonds. “Our teams went above and beyond in taking care of each other and our clients, and I am proud to share these awards with them.”
