At age 3, Tim Hebert had big dreams of growing up to become a superhero. He pictured donning the cape, harnessing his innate ability to fly and warding off evil to protect the innocent. He had all the characteristics needed to become a successful superhero—high energy, a love of adventure and a devout admiration for the greatest superhero of all time… Wolverine.
Somewhere along the way—and after many failed attempts to fly—Tim learned that superpowers can come in all shapes and sizes and committed to his personal mission of lighting a fire in the hearts and minds of those around him.
Tim is focused on the wake he leaves behind, particularly on how small moments made today can lead to a brighter future tomorrow. As CEO and President of Atrion, a leading IT services firm, Tim is committed to expounding on the importance of fusing business and technology and propelling Atrion to become a top 1 percent organization.
At the helm of Atrion, he is responsible for identifying ways to expand the company’s array of technology services, forging strategic partnerships and creating lasting impact by being a responsible leader, enabling others to reach their leadership potential and conceptualizing workforce development models and frameworks.
Both inside and outside of Atrion’s corporate walls, Tim has emerged as a well-regarded speaker, author, workshop leader and facilitator on personal and professional leadership topics. His approach to leadership has been featured in countless publications from IDG to CRN to Processor Magazine.
Most recently Tim has been accepted into the IDG Contributor Network, of which he is a regular blogger. Tim is also a prolific blogger for the Atrion website.
Tim also serves on the advisory councils for many corporations including Cisco Systems, BlueCoat, and Nimsoft.
