ExperienceTims career spans over thirty years as a business owner, corporate executive, consultant, and scholar. He spent the first sixteen years of his career as an entrepreneur, creating, building, and managing several successful companies, including a commercial banking firm that catered to vendors and manufacturers using equipment financing as a catalyst for driving incremental sales. This business was acquired in 1996 and went through multiple mergers and acquisitions that ultimately led Tim to join Citigroup’s CitiCapital division as Vice President. For the next seven years he managed the business technology sector responsible for Cisco Systems, Oracle, and other major companies, building this group’s sales to over $200 million. In 2003, Tim left corporate America to return to his “first loves” – the blue mountains of Western North Carolina and helping businesses grow and prosper. As a consultant, coach, and Chairman of Optimum Capital Funding, his clients have included well known companies such as Ericsson, Lucent, Corning Optics, Herman Miller, Haworth, Steelcase, as well as many small and mid-size businesses. When not working with Optimum Capital Funding clients, Tim serves as Executive Director of the Christian mission, “New Song Mission Nicaragua”, and sits on the boards of several non-profit and educational institutions. He has an extensive library which includes many one-of-a-kind books and documents. Before relocating to North Carolina, he was a favorite speaker and instructor on 16th Century history and religion.
