Cedar Rapids, Iowa, October 08, 2019 – Ideal Computer Systems and c-Systems Software Inc., two leading industry-specific dealership software vendors in North America, are pleased to jointly announce that Tim Berman has joined them as the new Innovation Manager.
Tim’s mission is to leverage his experience in the outdoor power equipment (OPE) industry and his entrepreneurial spirit to deliver innovative products that closely match the industry-specific needs and expectations of OPE dealers.
This role is a perfect fit for Tim because he is a passionate entrepreneur who loves the OPE industry and small brick-and-mortar businesses in general. He grew up working with his father at a family-run tractor dealership, which he helped expand from a two-man startup to a thriving two-location dealership.
After 17 years in the business, they recently sold both locations, allowing Tim’s father to transition toward retirement and Tim to pursue other passions.
I think working for Ideal and c-Systems is the perfect next step for my career,” said Tim. “I see a lot of opportunities when it comes to product innovation in the OPE industry, and I can’t wait to start exploring them.
Tim is a great new addition to our team,” said Ajay Thakur, the General Manager of Ideal and c-Systems. “His passion for the industry is exactly what we need to help us deliver future products that resonate with our customers and deliver real business results. I’m looking forward to seeing what he has in store for us.
Outside of work, Tim is a hymn writer and arranger, and has a love for the human voice, the greatest instrument ever created. He lives in rural North Texas, in the small lake town of Granbury, where he helped found the Downtown church of Christ, which is now in its seventh year of service to the Granbury community.
He recently celebrated his first anniversary with his lovely wife, Sarah, who was a staff accountant at his dealership. She now runs an independent consulting firm that works with dealerships and small businesses on financial reporting. In his spare time, Tim loves spending time with his wife and family, and he is an uncle to four nephews and three nieces.
