Timm Funk, CPA

When Timm started the business, he recognized a common trend among organizations; each wanted to grow but spent so much time managing HR, bookwork, and accounting, they didn’t have the time. He understood — especially from a financial aspect — that having a CFO on staff wasn’t feasible, and yet smaller organizations have the most to gain from sound accounting and fully-developed financial reporting practices.

It was then he created Timm Funk Associates, an interim CFO and business transition service. From there, he could provide CFO services to organizations on an as-needed basis, which allowed them to keep their costs down while benefiting from his insight, data analytics, and financial reporting. Timm has facilitated organizational turnarounds and acquisitions, and has been an appointed trustee for a multi-million dollar estate. He has served as an expert witness in litigation and also supports a large insurance company in resolving ‘business income loss’ claims.

Prior to coming into business himself, Timm worked for 20 years in the private and not-for-profit sectors in accounting and senior management roles. He is a graduate of Briar Cliff University and is originally from Moville, Iowa.
