Tim is the full package. Better known around the water cooler as “Amazon Prime”, Tim has a knack for knowing just what his insurance clients need and delivering it overnight (at a premium). Whether he’s flexing his subrogation muscles, “nerding out” over a new coverage issue or investigating fraud, Tim enjoys thinking outside the box. A music and karaoke lover with a newly discovered passion for playing hockey, Tim has a wide variety of interests that keep him on his feet.

Tim shares a hometown with Neil Young, born and raised in the country outside Peterborough. While he stills rocks the Canadian tuxedo on special occasions, Tim has since traded his pick-up truck for a Zipcar membership and his calluses for paper cuts (until we went paperless!). Tim is also the younger brother of three older sisters, making him feel right at home at the female-led SBA.
