Tim worked at a local playground manufacturer, BigToys, during high school and college in a wide variety of positions. He helped the original owners sell the company to a large publicly traded European competitor in the early 90's. He worked as vice president of operations for this larger company for the next 12 years. He left the company in 2003 and six months later was given the opportunity to buy the BigToys product line. Tim owned the company for seven years and was able to double their sales and expand internationally. He reluctantly sold the company during the recession, went back to school to earn his MBA, and has been teaching accounting and business courses at local colleges and universities since that time. Beyond teaching, Tim enjoys sailing, gardening and enjoying his time with his seven grandchildren.
