Tim Keating

Experienced and Successful salesman

Tim Keating

I have extensive sales experience and natural interpersonal skills. I care about my performance and take pride in it. I am a problem solver, who excels in the moment. I enjoy being part of a team and believe myself to be  a good teammate. I work well with others and I am eager to help and learn from them. I was taught to carry your own weight... as a result I am a low maintenance employee.

Most recently my sales experience has been in the mortgage industry. I have additional sales experience from retail sales positions at Guitar Center, Wicks Home furnishings, Time Inc. and as a wine broker.

I have valuable experience in the food and beverage industry.with roles as a bartender/bar manager/group sales/marketing/promotions and more at The Funny Bone Comedy club, ( 5yrs ) Michael Jordan's  Restaurant during the last 3 championship seasons. (96,97,98) and Second City Chicago.

I am happily married with a 14 year old son, Declan. For the past 9 years I have been the head coach of my sons little league baseball team.That experience has provided me with some of my greatest moments and memories. I have played guitar for 25+ years and I am avid fan of music. My wife and I love to travel and enjoy back country camping.

I am a hardworking, intuitive thinking self starter and problem solver.
