Tomislav Sertić (21 December 1902 – 27 September 1945) was a member of the Croatian World War II Ustaše regime in charge of the Independent State of Croatia during World War II.

He was born in Udbina on 21 December 1902. He finished business school in Dubrovnik, and further completed military training in Belgrade in 1923. He later served in the army of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia where he gained the rank of Major in 1939.

In 1941 he became the commanding officer of the 1st Ustaša Regiment. In 1944 he became a Domobran general.
