This week’s “Meet the Director Monday” is Tim Becker. Tim works at FAST Global Solutions as the Facility Manager and has been serving on ADC for over five years.
Tim grew up in Fairbury, Nebraska, a small town much like Auburn. He attended high school in Crete, Nebraska and then went on to college in Indiana. He moved all over the midwest and lived in Wisconsin and Iowa before returning to Nebraska where he and his wife, Angie raised their four kids, Zachary, Amelia, Kyra, and Kyle. He and his family first moved to Auburn to be a little closer to home, and Tim joined the workforce at Ariens Manufacturing which has since transitioned into FAST Global Solutions.
Tim wanted to be involved and saw the Auburn Development Council as an opportunity to help other businesses and to also assist the community to grow in any way possible. Tim values recruiting and retaining workforce employees. He sees ADC as a way to make Auburn a more attractive place to live so that they can be competitive against other communities to bring in and retain employees and community members.
When asked “Who on the ADC Board do you look up to?” Tim replied that he looks up to Kim Beger and Leslie Clark. “Kim is the overall glue of the organization and helps to maintain old traditions but isn’t afraid to try new things either. Leslie is new and has helped to kickstart the organization to improve the quality of life locally.”
ADC has exciting things in the works and Tim looks forward to seeing LB-840 passed, hopefully in the near future. LB840 is a financing option for local businesses as well as supporting an economic developer for the community. Tim believes this option will help make quality and prompt improvements to the town and a great opportunity to help Auburn grow to its full potential.
