Meet Assemble Systems Business Development Manager, Tim Kelly. Tim has a wealth of experience within the construction industry, having spent the last 7 years innovating with BIM in design and construction from the general contractor and construction management perspective. Tim earned his BS in Construction Science from Texas A&M University and prior to joining Assemble Systems served as BIM Manager at Satterfield & Pontikes Construction.
During his spare time, Tim enjoys spending time with friends & family, playing racquetball, golf, biking, woodworking, cards, and a variety of other hobbies.
As part of our getting to know the Assemble Team series, we will ask Tim some highly anticipated questions to get to know him better:
1. If you could describe yourself in only three words what would they be?
Ambitious, Benevolent, Curious
2. If you could have dinner with one historical figure who would it be?
Andrew Carnegie. I am fascinated by this time period when America was booming, and the men who built empires because they were relentless, and yes, ruthless. He is truly a “rags to riches” story and then gave most of it away as a philanthropist. I would be so interested in seeing how a man like Carnegie lived his life.
3. What is your favorite food?
This is a tough call because I have a strong love of food, and even trying to come up with an answer to this question has me reminiscing about so many delicious meals. If I had to pick one item, it would probably be a medium-rare ribeye. Honorable mention goes to a salt-crusted branzino from Esca in NYC…I have only had it a few times, but I think about it often.
4. Tell us one thing on your “bucket-list”
I am going to be stealing this one from Trent (our VP of Product Development)…backpacking through Europe. I have several places in mind, but like many of the trips my wife and I take, most stops would likely be focused on the cuisine.
5. What was your favorite class in College?
I would have to say Construction Materials & Methods taught by Professor Bob Segner. I would bet that an overwhelming majority of Construction Science students at Texas A&M from 1970 to current (yes, he has taught this class for that long) would agree with me. He always kicked off class with an exuberant “Howdy” (former Aggie yell leader) and made what could easily have been a boring class so fun and interesting.
