Tim was one of the founding executives of Bechtel’s EnergyWorks, which developed, owned, and operated on-site energy systems for large multinational corporations in Asia and Latin America using a variety of fuel sources. Prior to EnergyWorks, Tim worked at Air Products and Chemicals, where he developed multiple environmental and energy projects.

Tim established EMC Development Company in 2005 to foster the development of sustainable clean energy projects.
