Timothy Wenhold

As Chief Innovation Officer of Power Home Remodeling, Tim is responsible for all aspects of technology for this high-growth-mode company that is transforming the home remodeling industry. This includes the company’s unique, state-of-the-art collaborative intelligence platform, which enables seamless, real-time communication across a network of thousands of employees, partners and customers in 18 states. Since joining Power as a consultant in 2007, Timothy’s counsel, vision and leadership have been instrumental to the company’s growth and aggressive expansion objectives. Understanding the need to better communicate with employees in the field, as well as provide the company with a way to seamlessly track, facilitate, engage with and support marketing and sales progress, customer experience, installation processes, and post-installation payment cycles, Timothy and his global business technology team developed NITRO. A radical and visionary departure from conventional solutions to these challenges, NITRO is now the most technologically innovative and advanced enterprise solution in the industry. As such, its capabilities were instrumental in the company’s rapid growth to its current state as the nation's 2nd largest exterior home remodeler with more than $405 million in revenue, and is viewed company-wide as the critical tool to Power’s continued success.

Timothy's educational background doesn't start in a top university. In spite of having a scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania, Timothy decided to tackle life first—going on the road with a band—financing the tour himself. After a year of truly experiencing life, Timothy returned home in debt and needing to figure out his next move. After a series of jobs in varying industries from aerospace to engineering, he found his home in computers, technology and innovation. In 1985 he founded Sintaks, a regional systems integrator working with clients such as ARAMARK, GMAC, SEI, etc. After growing the company for more than 10 years, Timothy sold Sintaks to Cannon in 1996 as Cannon viewed this acquisition as strategic to their goal of connected devices. The entrepreneur bug had definitely taken hold of Timothy, so he went on to start, grow and sell multiple technology companies, laying the groundwork for the creation of Data In Motion, a systems innovation company. Power became a customer of the company in 2007 before finally integrating the company fully into the technology division of Power in 2012. Timothy currently resides in Collegeville, PA with his wife Stacy and daughter, Gillian.
