Tim Arnold


Tim Arnold understands that building a company from the ground up can be full of unexpected surprises and difficult decisions, especially amidst recessions, trade disputes, high interest rates, and varying political landscapes. This is why the experienced investor, entrepreneur, and CEO with a recent 20x+ exit prioritizes being pragmatic, analytical and creative in his approach to building and financing companies. 

Tim does not shy away from high-stakes decision-making. In fact, he’s helped his clients – from hyper-growth startups to Fortune 500s like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, TJX, VF Corp, T-Mobile, and L’Oreal – to minimize distractions and make sound decisions for optimal results. 

His strong financial background and expertise in sales, marketing and operations, combined with his EMBA from UCLA, have advanced startups in consumer electronics, action sports, FinTech, HealthTech, PropTech, and creative services. Today, his diverse professional background has met its match: building and financing the next generation of high-impact health, wealth and sustainability startups.

  • Track record of making significant increases to EBITDA and total enterprise value
  • Twenty years as a serial entrepreneur with multiple exits
  • Multi-industry CEO, CFO with sales, marketing, operations, retail and manufacturing expertise
  • Also found surfing, swimming, paddleboarding, running, hiking, or mountain biking alongside his wife and 4 kids
