Chief Financial Officer | Executive Vice President | Principal

Tim joined KBE in 1996 and was named Chief Financial Officer in 2009 and Executive Vice President in 2015. In 2017, Tim was named one of four new Principals of the company. He received a bachelor’s in business administration from Bryant College.

What I like about working in the construction industry:
I went to college expecting to work in a public accounting firm, auditing the books of client companies. But I learned along the way that I enjoy working for a private company where I feel like I have a part in truly creating something. I love that - while I work in the office, I am still part of something being built and created.

Best advice I’ve ever received…and given:
Words are powerful. Therefore, what you say matters. People listen to what you say and take it to heart. My advice? Never leave anything unsaid.

What matters most to me about my work:
I sometime spend more time here with the KBE family than I do with my wife and kids. We truly are a family within the KBE Companies and being able to feel like we are family is important to me. We trust, respect, and care for one another.
