Tim is a local entrepreneur who became a co-owner of KC High Lights in August 2019. Tim grew up in the Omaha area and played an active role in his family business, Skarda Equipment Company, before moving to Lawrence to attend the University of Kansas.


During his graduate studies at the University of Kansas, Tim recognized a need among small and middle-market business owners for sophisticated investment banking services. As a result, in 2002, Tim founded an investment banking firm named Allied Business Group, which provided sell-side M&A advisory and business valuation services for companies across a broad range of industries. Tim eventually sold his firm to a top wealth advisory firm headquartered in the Midwest.


Drawing upon his experience with his family business and advising business owners on the sale of their companies, Tim understands the importance of building and maintaining strong customer relationships by consistently delivering quality work.
