Tim Paul is a trusted leadership advisor after serving in the Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer for eight years. His experience gained in the hostile environment of the overseas battle space and the athletic field allows him to help leaders and teams to cultivate alignment at all levels, implement psychological balance, and inspire a shared vision that leaders and followers all believe in together.

He was stationed onboard USS PONCE (LPD-15) where he led his first team in the operational management of electrical distribution and communications systems. He would then quickly advance to become a Tactical Actions Officer onboard USS GEORGE H W BUSH (CVN-77). There, he regulated the ship's weapons, sensors, and propulsion in defense of mission capabilities. Onboard, he would lead a team of 135 personnel before moving to North Carolina to accept a role as the region's Nuclear Engineering Officer Recruiter.

Tim holds a bachelor's of science in economics from the United States Naval Academy. He was an All-American lacrosse player and four-year letter winner from 2007 to 2010. He is a regular speaker at colleges across the nation.
