Timm joined the company in 1997 as Corporate Controller, and over the years, he served as Chief Financial Officer, and VP, CFO & Treasurer. According to CEO Timothy Boyle, Timm played an integral role in the brand’s rise from a $300 million to a $2.4 billion business. Timm’s responsibilities will be handled other senior managers.
Prior to joining Columbia, Timm held financial positions at Oregon Steel Mills and KPMG LLP.

“He has been a key contributor to our growth and transformation, most recently by establishing leadership that is planting the seeds for future growth at our Mountain Hardwear brand and in our direct-to-consumer business,” said Boyle. “We thank him for his loyal service and contribution to the Company’s success and we wish him well in his new endeavors.”
Prior to the announcement of Timm’s departure, Columbia promoted David Lawner to SVP of North America Direct-to-Consumer. The company’s US business fell 1% in sales in the first quarter, but overall sales increased 4% to over $543 million.
