Meet Our Leadership Team
“The key to exceptional customer service is to approach all engagements with the intent to add value and understanding for our client.”
Patrick (Pat) J. Laubacher joined Judd Thomas in 1984 and is the director of audit and assurance services. He is personally involved in the detailed fieldwork for many of the firm’s audits and believes that thorough, timely, and responsive service to our clients is job one.
Pat holds a BBA in Accounting from the University of North Texas (Go Eagles!), and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Texas Society of CPAs.
He has extensive experience in multiple industries including financial institutions, employee benefits plans, manufacturers, restaurant groups, construction companies, wholesalers, and non-profits, to name a few.
Pat works with small and medium-sized businesses, coordinating, balancing and maximizing the benefits available from an income tax and accounting perspective, both for the business and the respective owners, putting him in a unique position to add value for our clients.
One of his important roles at Judd Thomas is that of quality control. In this role, Pat oversees and coordinates the Firm’s membership in the Center for Public Company Audit Firms Section of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, which entails a peer review of the firm’s quality control policies and procedures every third year for compliance. Judd Thomas joined the Center for Public Company Audit Firms in 1981 to demonstrate our commitment to quality and has successfully completed all its peer reviews.
When he is not at work at Judd Thomas, Pat is active in his church, enjoys reading and rooting for all the Dallas based sport’s teams.
