Tim Rettig, CEO
Intrust CEO Tim Rettig is a guy who knows how to get the ball rolling and keep it rolling. Since Intrust first kicked off in 1992, while Tim was still a student in UC’s College of Engineering, he has been running with success down the IT outsourcing field, bringing with him a team of loyal players to help keep the action moving at a fast pace.
Like the soccer games he enjoys playing weekly in a men’s recreational league, Tim does not slow down for long and hardly ever stops. As a second generation technology entrepreneur, Tim was born with the desire to inspire change in the world and every day he plays toward this goal, finding and incorporating cutting-edge business practices that allow clients to use technology to share data and connect.
Empowering clients is a goal that Tim leads the Intrust team toward, not only with a passion for the work, but with a passion for making the work enjoyable. Because aside from making the strategic moves necessary to make Intrust one of the fastest growing IT companies—scoring a spot on Inc 5000’s list of Fasting Growing Private Companies for three consecutive years—Tim is committed to making Intrust one of the most fun companies. Recently listed by MeetAdvisors.com as one of “10 CEO’s That Know How to Have Fun”, Tim’s sense of play at his work and attention to employee culture has landed Intrust a nomination for Cincinnati Business Courier’s “Best Places to Work” four years in a row.
Moving fast forward since the day he began the company, Tim has grown from a student visionary to a self-assured CEO of one of the top cyber security companies, but still plays the game with a youthful attitude, expecting his teammates to have a ball, too. His work philosophy? Enjoy all of it. Have fun. Laugh a lot. It’s good for business.
