Tim is most interested in how the intersection of business and design can lead to innovation and meaningful experiences for the consumer. Prior to founding Rentcycle, Tim worked in business development for Cheskin, an innovation consulting firm. Before that, he was Brand Manager at Red Hat Inc, where he strategically managed the brand portfolio for this global software company. Tim graduated with distinction from Duke University with a BA in Visual Arts (graphic design) and Certificates in Markets & Management Studies and Film, Video, and Digital Media.
