Founder/President, Tim Byrd & Associates
The stepping stones that brought Mr. Byrd to the admirable credentials listed on this homepage have family beginnings. Even as a toddler, he participated in & witnessed his family’s supermarket business growing to be the largest in several surrounding Southeast U.S. counties. During an era that birthed mega grocery chains, Tim was instilled with the old-fashioned traits of persistent hard work and operating by the golden rule. These admirable qualities became his persona throughout his tour in the U.S. Coast Guard and subsequent operation of multiple businesses.
While mastering the field of insurance with John Hancock Insurance Co., Mr. Byrd became intrigued with the industry of car sales, deciding to plant his talent in that industry. Over the next several years, Tim’s exceptional performance as an F&I Manager led the way for him to become a renowned trainer for other F&I Managers. Tim was armed with the unique combination of “degrees” in insurance, sales, F&I, and servant-leadership ethics. This talent nearly dictated that he birth his own company, which, for nearly 20 years now, has successfully enhanced scores of dealers’ businesses. Today, Tim reports “our team’s knowledge of every aspect of the car business, combined with our commanding knowledge of reinsurance, allows us to be a trusted source to guide dealers to greater profits, in a simple, secure & successful environment.”
The same passion for other’s business success can be found in Tim’s love for his family. Tim has eight beautiful children, and lives in picturesque Gloucester, VA with his beautiful wife Jennifer. Tim summarizes, “above all, my passion as a Christian man strives to reflect the values of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
