Tim has more than 30 years of experience in public finance and management of government and non-profit enterprises. He joined PFM in 2011 and is the co-head of the firm’s public-private partnership (P3) practice. Tim began his career as Special Assistant to the Commissioner of Transportation in New Jersey. He subsequently served as Cabinet Secretary to the Governor and as Commissioner of the Department of Human Services, the State’s largest agency. He entered the field of public finance as a banker at Kidder, Peabody & Co. before moving to Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, where he was a partner in the firm’s municipal securities division.

A pioneer in the P3 field, Tim established his own advisory firm in 1996, which provided public agencies a variety of mechanisms for leveraging underutilized or undercapitalized assets. At PFM, he has led the firm’s P3 advisory services to Nassau County on two innovative procurements: the redeployment of the Veterans Coliseum and surrounding property and the executed management contract with United Water for the County’s sewer system. Additionally, he is currently advising Nassau County on the valuation of the Nassau District Energy Scheme. He leads the firm’s P3 advisory services to the states of Pennsylvania and Virginia and also advised the City of Allentown, Pennsylvania on its landmark competitively bid long-term lease of its water and sewer systems. He is advising cities and counties in these and other states as they evaluate and execute P3 transactions involving commuter and central city parking, transit and highway facilities, utility and real estate assets. Tim has worked extensively on government budgetary matters, completing two full terms on the Board of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, where he chaired the Audit Committee.
