Tim began his career with Messer in 1984, working for the company first as a co-op for several years. After earning his bachelor’s degree in Construction Engineering and Management from Purdue University, he joined Messer full time in 1988. Five years later he earned his M.B.A. from Xavier University. Over the next 30 years, he grew from a project engineer, to a site leader, to a senior project executive overseeing multiple jobsites, to a region leader in charge of the operational performance and profit and loss for an entire market. He helped grow Messer’s Columbus region, and in 2005 led the opening of Messer’s Indianapolis office. As the company grew, so too did the need for a dedicated leader to focus on improving the way the company developed, branded and communicated about its services. In 2010 he took on company-wide project development leadership for the company, which includes leadership of the business development, sales support, marketing and corporate communication, and cost planning and estimating departments, and healthcare division. In January 2018 Tim was promoted to president, assuming leadership of the construction company, including responsibility for overall company performance and strategic direction.
Tim sits on the boards of the Cincinnati Museum Center, YMCA of Greater Cincinnati and Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Cincinnati, and has served on the board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis, Indiana, and Columbus, Ohio, as well as Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati.
