"Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations" - Peter Drucker

Tim is a team builder and problem solver.  He excels at collaborating with stakeholders to develop and articulate company visions.

Tim has served in many roles throughout his career in consumer-packaged goods and healthcare, including board member, CEO, COO and other senior level positions. In his most recent role at a third-generation family business (Lundberg Family Farms), Tim served as Executive Vice President of Operations, overseeing Manufacturing, Agriculture, Farming, Human Resources, Quality, Legal, and Planning.  During his tenure at Lundberg, the company grew five-fold, and his teams were recognized for excellence in the industry, including the Research & Development Team of the Year (Food Processing Magazine) and Top Small Workplace (Wall Street Journal). Tim’s leadership through a crisis was the subject of a New York Times case study – “Family Farm in California Confronts Reports of Arsenic in Its Rice” (nytimes.com)
