Co-op & Conventional Retail Support

Areas of Expertise:

  • Financial management expertise
  • Pro forma development
  • Startup operational support

Experience:

  • Led a food co-op team from a -1.05% loss to a positive net profit of +2.23% over a seven month period in an interim general manager assignment
  • Consistently increased sales, gross, and net profits over an 11 year period for Hy-Vee Food Stores

As a result of Tim’s work, the People’s saw a sales decrease turn into a 3% monthly increase, and the upward trend has continued. Tim initiated new ways of financial reporting and monitoring, increased staff morale even while cutting labor, started projects to increase ownership and outreach, and listed ideas for necessary store upgrades, all the while creating goodwill and offering support. All of this resulted in a significant improvement on the bottom line. We wanted to keep him!
