Tim has been in the financial services industry since he graduated from John Carroll University, Cleveland, OH in 1984. His career began with Federated Investors, Inc. where he worked with banks, savings and loans, and trust departments representing asset management and trust investment services. From there, he spent time with Mellon Bank in the global cash management division where he consulted for Fortune 500 companies in New York and Connecticut. Tim also held various management positions with the Federal Home Loan Bank and Bisys Fund Services where he concentrated on raising bank capital and lending services as well as product management and delivery of investment products to the institutional buy-side of the street. In 1995, he co-founded Mid Atlantic Institutional Shares, Inc. (“MAIS”) where he was president and CEO. MAIS quickly became one of the most prominent trading platforms in the nation, focusing on the TPA, corporate, and trust department marketplace. It grew to over $30 billion in client assets under administration. In November 2002, Mid Atlantic Institutional Shares, Inc. was sold to SunGard and combined its product and services with SunGard’s STN Funds where Tim then served as president. In 2004 Tim, along with several other key industry figures, developed a company that has become American Trust Custody. This company was designed to complement the services MAIS had offered to its TPA and trust clientele. It currently offers directed trustee, custody, sub-custody, paying agent, and reporting services for the retirement and trust space. Tim now serves on the executive committee of the American Trust Custody companies and as president of American Trust Custody and is concentrating his efforts on the institutional and retirement plan administration marketplaces and advisor recruiting.
