TIM HINDES

TIM HINDES

Marketing, Communications, & Social Media

With a career spanning sales, marketing, strategy, nonprofit administration, communications, and entrepreneurship, Tim has a complete perspective on economic development through a marketing and communications lens. Tim has presented regionally and nationally on topics surrounding social media, marketing, and branding, and has worked with some of the country’s top brands throughout his career. As a strategist, he applies qualitative and quantitative data to develop recommendations, action plans, and comprehensive blueprints, focusing on impact and investment. As a creative, Tim builds the tools for implementation, incorporating methodic principles of design and psychology.

As the former Director of Marketing for the Pittsburgh Technology Council, Tim provided the foresight and direction to enhance the electronic marketing efforts of the PTC, while creating the organization’s social media campaigns and strategy from scratch. His proven leadership practices and campaigns are still the skeleton of current efforts of the organization, which were recognized by ASAE, receiving the Gold Circle Award for electronic communications. He also received the BSA President’s Award for Marketing for a strategic regional marketing campaign targeted at youth programs.

In addition to Tim’s marketing and communications experience, he also has extensive experience in grant writing, aligning funding opportunities with client needs and orchestrating millions of dollars in successful grant proposals for organizations.

Tim serves on the local CANstruction organizing committee, an event where teams build sculptures out of canned goods, which are then donated to local food banks. As an Eagle Scout, Tim remains active with the scouting program in an advisory role for the camping and marketing departments. Graduating with high honors from Allegheny College, Tim was active in numerous organizations, including the college radio station and television station — the foundation for his love of communications.

As an avid outdoorsman, Tim can usually be found hiking a mountain, floating down a river, or relaxing around a campfire, when he’s not at his home in South Park, PA.
