- Winston Churchill
At a young age, Tim set his heart on a career in the sports industry. As a soccer player, Tim trained at a high level, but saw his career derailed by a litany of serious knee injuries that resulted in four major reconstructive surgeries. Determined not to be overcome by misfortune, Tim shifted his focus to academics and found a career working for the Department of Defense. In those days, he held two jobs serving as a program manager for the United States Air Force while also moonlighting as a soccer coach. Late at night, he took courses to complete his undergraduate degree. The experience of working two jobs while pursuing an education forged his deep connection to the principles of hard work and perseverance. After some time, Tim transitioned into the banking industry, where he currently leads North American consultant relations for one of the world’s largest custodian banks.
Apart from his interest in finance, Tim cares deeply about social justice issues. He currently serves as Chair of the Lenny Zakim Fund, an organization founded in 1995 that is dedicated to advancing social justice and dignity for all people. In holding this position, Tim leads efforts to provide funding, leadership training, networking opportunities, and pro bono legal support to grassroots organizations in Eastern Massachusetts. In 2022, Tim was announced as a Presidential Leadership Scholar. As a result, he has the benefit of learning leadership principles directly from Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. This program also allows him to learn from the Presidential experiences of George H.W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson. Tim is passionate about sharing the lessons he has learned throughout his career with others, and Reperio functions as a conduit to make that vision a reality.
