Tim is a technology and engineering pioneer with history of identifying promising emerging technologies and molding them into new solutions and business opportunities. Tim first caught the entrepreneurial spirit in his decade at Tandem, an early pioneer in computing. In 1994, Apple Computer, Dell Computer, Lockheed Martin, Air Products and Chemicals, Cummins Engine, Bausch and Lomb, and Ampex had one thing in common – they all ran their global manufacturing operations on Tandem’s Questicon ERP software. Tim spun Questicon out of Tandem Computers and was the CEO from 1992 until 2000.
Before becoming an entrepreneur, Tim held various executive positions at leading edge technology companies including IBM, HP/Compaq, Tandem Computer, Bunker Ramo and Four Phase Systems. Tim began his career as a research chemist with Sun Chemical.
After Questicon, Tim worked at the IBM Watson and Almaden Research Laboratories. There Tim led investments in a broad portfolio of emerging technologies. These included renewable energy, chemicals, power generation, water treatment, healthcare, life science, information technology, transportation, and nanotechnology. Also at IBM, Tim helped launch the IBM Healthcare and Life Science Industry, serving as IBM Global Manager of Channel Development, where he built a new sales and marketing organization that covered 17 regions across 3 geographies. As a Senior Partner in the IBM Business Consulting Services organization, Tim sold and delivered e-transformation services to global firms.
Outside of work, Tim spends time with his family, is a mentor to entrepreneurs and their companies, plays golf and sails. Occasionally, he writes some computer code.
