Tim Bannister
Director of Sales

Following an initial career working for for-profit and nonprofit organizations, ranging from Chrysler Corporation to Sisters of Mercy Health Corporation, Tim Bannister launched his own consulting firm in 1986 specializing in planning and implementing business-to-business marketing communications programs. In later years, Bannister added business strategy development and contractual sales to the firm’s stable of services.

Prior to starting his own company, he worked for a consortium of seven automotive manufacturers who banded together to pass seat belt legislation state-by-state. In that capacity, he was responsible for hiring public relations and lobbying firms in some 26 states in support of passing related legislation; and he published a supplement in support of seat-belt utilization that circulated among USA Today’s 1.5 million readers. As president and CEO of Bannister and Co., he has consulted with more two dozen manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive, defense, electronic controls, marine, and packaging industries, generating substantial ROIs from successful marketing strategies and tactics. He has also consulted with the public service sector, providing public education for ballot initiatives and regional environmental issues.
