As we embark on a prosperous new year in 2019, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Jackie Timm as USASBE’s new full time Executive Director. Jackie was selected after an extensive national search process and begins her new role on Friday, January 4th. She will be based at USASBE’s central office hosted on the campus of the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater.


Ms. Timm is excited to join our association, noting she “believes that USASBE and its members stand for the very things that are foundational to the pursuit and achievement of the “American dream.”  She looks forward to bringing her experience in highly collaborative environments, results orientation, passion for people, skills and ideas to USASBE.


Jackie comes to USASBE with a wealth of experience. She has led well-known organizations across diverse industries from strategic planning through execution. Examples of her leadership impact include:

  • Leading the planning and delivery of an aggressive growth strategy at Refinitive (formerly Thomson Reuters Financial & Risk) that secured millions in funding;
  • Spearheading a $6M impact for the Harley-Davidson Museum within two years; and
  • Driving continuous improvement transformation and change management initiatives that dramatically strengthened staff and business performance in a number of organizations.

Jackie is passionate and driven to bring out the best in herself and others as a visionary, caring, inclusive, and accountable leader. She is able to masterfully align the big picture with everyday execution excellence to ignite real-world impact.

It is also important to express our gratitude to Julie Shields for her service as Interim Executive Director during this important time in USASBE’s evolution and as Jackie comes on board, as well as Millikin University for its support. Because of these efforts USASBE is well-positioned to keep the momentum moving forward in delivering on our mission to be the leading inclusive community advancing entrepreneurship education through bold teaching, scholarship, and practice. 

Please join me in welcoming Jackie! She can be reached at

USASBE President
