Your Mission Point Planning Team | Tim
At 25, I was given a unique chance to change careers and am truly thrilled to join the team here and bring some of the elements of my past professions to aid in the progression of Mission Point. I also believe that my personal journey helps to reflect and reinforce our mantra here, showcasing the need for a solid financial foundation as you never know where your life will lead.”
Prior to joining Mission Point, Timothy served in various capacities on the local media circuit. During his time at Oakland University, Timothy covered nearly every Golden Grizzly basketball contest for the student paper and radio. Additionally, he worked for the Detroit Pistons Radio Network during that span, serving as a statistician for live broadcasts and interviewing a who’s who of opposing players including LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant. Timothy interned and worked at 97.1 the Ticket for two years as a producer, board operator, update anchor and reporter.
Timothy’s marketing background includes stops in the athletic departments at OU and Detroit Mercy and a full-time role as a Support Advisor at General Motors out of college. He left GM in 2016 to return to journalism with C&G Newspapers. Timothy spent two years as a sports writer, traveling all over the state in pursuit of profiles. During his tenure, he penned over 400 profiles on anything and everything including the prep and college circuit, local Stanley Cup champions and NFL draft picks, professional bass fishing, curling, NASCAR and skeet shooting.
