Owner and Advisor
Tim has worked in the optical industry since 1992. He has held various positions in both the corporate and private sectors of the optical industry. He has been responsible for managing as many as 29 offices, and he has overseen the development and implementation of a variety of operational processes and procedures.
In 2013, Tim left a private practice to become a consultant to help private practice optometrists. He has worked with more than 100 offices in the United States and Canada. Tim’s areas of expertise include human resource management, staff training and development, employee retention, accounting and budgeting, and adjusting cost of goods levels. Tim has had the chance to share his expertise through various speaking engagements within the United States and Canada. Tim is a COPE and ABO approved speaker.
Tim has helped practices achieve success through financial controls, setting goals along with expectations and working with doctors on how to train and develop their team to meet those goals. “Everyone wants to be successful, we just sometimes need direction on how to get there,” Tim explains.
Before getting into the Optical Industry, Tim spent three and a half years refereeing for the Harlem Globetrotters. He has called a basketball game in over 70 countries and all 50 states. He says the jump from officiating to optical was a no brainer because everyone knows that referees have great eye sight. “I have never missed a call, just ask me!” says the former referee.
Tim is the proud father of two beautiful daughters, Kaylee and Madison while also being a proud grandpa to Brady. In his spare time, Tim still enjoys officiating and trying to lower his golf score without using an eraser.
