Tim joined MPC in 2011 as project manager of the Commute Options pilot program, led by MPC, and funded in its second year by the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA). Through his efforts, he recruited 16 regional employers to participate in Commute Options by offering one or more existing and new incentives to get employees out of their cars and into a better ride to work. In Phase 2 of the pilot, he is working with those employers to determine the impacts of their programs on their employees' commutes, as well as to build a case for a Chicago area transportation demand management program.
Tim has more than 25 years experience in transportation marketing and planning. As Hewitt’s (now Aon Hewitt) commuter transportation manager from 2000 to 2011, he was responsible for managing associate transportation programs at the company’s headquarters in Lincolnshire, Ill., and across North America. He also was involved in planning and developing the company's environmental programs worldwide.
Through Tim’s efforts, in 2006 and 2008, Hewitt and Jones Lang LaSalle received recognition from the Clean Air Counts program for their efforts in reducing air pollution in the Chicago area. In 2009, Hewitt was ranked #210 on Newsweek magazine’s list of Top Green Companies. In 2010, Hewitt received two awards from Clean Air Works! in Charlotte, N.C.
Tim has been a member of the Association for Commuter Transportation for over two decades, and is a former Midwest chapter vice president. Tim and his wife live in Elk Grove Village, Ill.
