As CEO, Tim leads MESH01 in its devotion to expanding client relationships with data-driven processes, execute program-level and enterprise-wide solutions, and implement cohesive, company-wide strategies that put clients, financial stability, and success at the forefront. When not in front of his screen, customers or in the air, Tim shares his love for the outdoors with his family -including his beloved dogs- whether on the ski slopes, hiking trails or at home.
