Timothy J. Czech | Chief Financial Officer
Tim Czech

Tim Czech has been a member of the IPM family for virtually his entire career. At age 20, he started at IPM as an intern before graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a BA in accounting. He earned his CPA shortly after graduation.

Since then, Tim has had hands-on involvement with every financial role at IPM, from accounting manager to Chief Financial Officer, a role he assumed in 2015. He also oversees all administrative aspects of the firm: Human Resources, Information Technology, Legal, and Creative Communication Services groups. He was instrumental in the development of IPM’s key performance index and financial systems, encouraged a focus to IT security, and has been responsible for establishing the strategic direction for HR. Under his supervision, IPM has grown from 117 employees to its current more than 180.

Since 2014, Tim has represented IPM as a member of the Board of Directors of the Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois. 

Tim’s passion is his family. He is actively involved in the lives of his two school-aged children, and volunteers as the assistant coach of his son’s basketball team. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoys a variety of activities, especially fishing; his favorite fishing spot is Northern Wisconsin, where he has competed in many professional muskie fishing tournaments. Other hobbies include woodworking, gardening, and photography.

Tim believes IPM’s success is a direct result of being a “company that cares” and a family atmosphere that nurtured him in growing up with the company. “IPM has always put people before profits, and we’ll work hard to maintain that culture—no matter how large we grow.”
