Tim's broad knowledge of the industry has enabled him to identify SBA-experienced top talent and successfully place knowledgeable personnel with client hiring managers. His innovative approach to becoming the "Go To Expert" has included actually doing the job of SBA lenders, launching and growing SBA departments with a nationwide footprint, and keeping a finger on the pulse of industry dynamics and personnel costs by conducting the Annual SBA Compensation Survey.
