Timm Funk, a CPA and owner of Timm Funk Associates, is serving as interim CEO of Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools (BHCS) for the 2017-18 school year. Funk joined the administrative staff in summer to help with the leadership transition of Jim Tschann who retired as president on Dec. 31.

Since arriving at Heelan Funk has worked with staff on large and small projects. He has: hired new business staff personnel, worked to upgrade infrastructure to support technology at each school, outsourced the payroll system to better serve employees and streamline office work, scheduled weekly staff meetings which rotate to each school building, created a leadership team to complete key initiatives and worked on final construction and moving details to the new Heelan.

Funk has offered business solutions services for 17 years and previously served as an executive vice president with Bekins Distribution and a senior accountant at MidAmerican Energy. A member of Holy Cross Parish, he is a BHCS former school board member and finance chair on the board. He and his wife, Jean, are the parents of Heelan graduates, Justin, Nathan and Sarah and several grandchildren. A BHCS president will be named at a later date.
