Tim Crown

Principal

Tim Crown is Chairman of the Board and former CEO of publicly held Insight Enterprises. Tim started Insight with his brother Eric, taking the company from a small startup into 22 countries with more than 7,000 worldwide employees and $7 billion in annual revenue. Partners since they were teens, Crown, and his brother, see opportunities to leverage knowledge and capital virtually everywhere. Together, they challenge business owners, empower staff to take risks, and lead from the front—little surprise, since Tim and his brother are the sons of a military officer.
