Tim is the founder of Mitscoots Outfitters, a social enterprise on a mission to outfit and employ individuals transitioning out of homelessness. Leveraging some past military and ad world experience, he has guided the team in growing Mitscoots into a national brand that has ultimately helped to lift individuals off the streets and out of homelessness. Through strategy, community building and grit, they’ve bootstrapped a great social enterprise into 200+ retail partnerships with a significant e-commerce presence.
Pivoting off that experience and at the insistence of colleagues, Tim founded Benefit Branding, a full service ad agency focused on social impact branding. With a unique technique for strategy, target audience insights, and long term planning, the team helps clients build customer relationships by telling their story in the best way possible, everywhere possible.
Tim also teaches branding and strategy as a faculty lecturer at the University of Texas at Austin in the Stan Richards School of Advertising and Public Relations. Tim can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
