About Tim Brand

Tim Brand is the Founder and CEO of Many Hands, established in 2008, speaker, author, and entrepreneur. As CEO, he provides vision and leadership for U.S. and International operations. Many Hands impacts 25,000 people in three countries and reaches over 200,000 people per year in U.S. "Business as Mission" retail stores. After graduating from high school in 1998, Tim joined a church group mission trip to help build a new school in Pignon, Haiti. This trip changed his perspective on God's global heart. Two years later in college, he was praying for direction for his life and he heard a voice say to go back to Haiti. The next morning, he received an email from a mission team about an upcoming trip. He agreed, and at the end of that trip, made a covenant with God to be involved in Haiti in some way for the rest of his life. While in the for-profit sector, he established an association of Iowa churches working in Haiti, striving to share best practices and financial accountability. It became clear this association needed to become an official non-profit, turning into Many Hands. Tim served as President of the Board from 2008-2011. Before founding Many Hands and going full-time in 2011, he spent 10 years in the for-profit business sector, with experience in global strategies, global account management, IT sales and management, and financial planning. Tim is an Iowa native and graduated from Central College with a Computer Information Systems degree and the University of Phoenix with a Masters in Business Management. Selected by CITYVIEW Business Journal as one of 20 business leaders making a difference in 2020, he dedicates his life to helping people release their God-given talent to be love in action. He writes a bi-monthly 3...2...1 Impact newsletter, has led hundreds of people on Impact Trips, and steps in as teaching pastor at multiple churches across the Midwest. Tim lives in Pella, Iowa, with his wife, Catie, and their two children.
