On July 28, 2015 everything that Timothy Armor had worked for came full circle. Having worked for Capital Management since getting his Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Middlebury College, he was now going to be the Chief Executive Officer of the company.
It was a bittersweet day. The man he had worked alongside preparing for his new role, Jim Rothenberg, had recently passed away of a heart attack. Before his death, however, they understood that Armor’s educational background and experience with the company made him a great fit for the position. Armor started out as a funds advisor, became a chairman and principle executive officer before taking on his new leadership role.
As business people, Timothy Armour and his colleagues understood that the company must continue doing business. Their goal then was to keep Rothenberg’s goal of “taking decisive action in the best long-term interests of our clients, investors and associates”. This is why he and the firm’s management committee, along with their seventy-six thousand associates, focus on serving their clients best interests.
In addition to working hard for a company he is passionate about, Timothy Armor also gives to his former college and recently donated between five and ten thousand dollars to the International Medical Corps, a company that focuses on helping educate people of other countries on how to take care of themselves.
Between his passion for helping others with investing and donating to worthy causes, it is obvious that Timothy Armor is on a mission to make the world a better place. That is something we can all be thankful for!
