About Tim Kubiak

Personal notes

What’s there to say… I’m a Business Geek, Nomad, Aging Metal Head, Nerd, & Coffee Addict. Plus the only big guy at Hot Yoga.

A father of two adult daughters and 3 “Grand Dogs” I’m native of Pittsburgh PA. My Father was a businessman and my Mother a secretary turned stay at home Mom who insisted she must have brought home “some hippie’s kid from the hospital” when I was young (actually well into my 30’s). Ironically because I was just like her, stubborn, strong willed, and opinionated. Fortunately my parents invested heavily into my education something I am grateful for to this day. 

Equally at home at sporting events, the theater or metal concerts my tastes like my look varies from a bow tie clad nerd to tattered Levi’s and black boots. 

My volunteer work centers around animal rescue and other communities of choice.  

My pronouns are He/Him.

    Recently I took on the challenge of a post acquisition integration of a $250m US entity into a global organization and transformed the culture from Reactive Order Fulfillment to Proactive Sellers driving solutions to an expanded Reseller customer base. Created a Resourcing and Customer segmentation plan. Developed and executed a vendor and customer diversification that included new account acquisition, line card expansion to transform the business both financially and culturally.

    Finnancial Innovation and Evolution

    With much of the Tech industry moving to or worrying about "The Cloud" how customers want to buy and consume products have changed. Moving purchased from CapEx to OpEx is a key purchasing driver. I led the efforts to create an "as a Service" model (of a specific offer) for a global telecom. Also helped lead teams to create channel wide solutions for resellers of all sizes.

    I worked with and for Tim Kubiak as Senior Account Manager from 2008 through 2018. During that time, he demonstrated to me as well as our entire sales team what it took to be successful salesperson in the IT Distribution industry. He never asked anyone to do something he would not do himself. Tim’s mindset is always a Customer Comes First approach. He also realized that our sales cycle was unique being our customer base was service providers and system integrations.
