Tim Bornemann (B.S. 1975)


After graduation I attended the U of Illinois - Engineering (M.S.), then U of Michigan and received a Finance Cm.B.A.

Now I am the president/owner of Lean Training and Coaching I have three daughters and currently five grandchildren. I began my professional life as an engineer designing machines, working my way up to run the day-to-day operations of a $250m/year manufacturing company. I also serve on the Board of Directors for two other firms. I enjoyed walking around the campus in the spring. I would find a nice place to sit down, preferably under a tree, and watch the people walk by. My favorite, and most memorable class, was Quantum Mechanics. It radically effected how I thought not only about science but about everything else - things are not always as they seem.
