When your grandfather is a creative director, your mom is an art instructor, and your dad is a CPA, you have a pretty good shot of becoming a creative guy with a healthy respect for business. That’s Tim. Still the day-to-day leader of the agency, Tim is Riester’s founder and CEO and is focused on helping his staff and clients succeed. He is as much at home in a late-night brainstorming session as he is in a media planning meeting. Tim was named an Honored Entrepreneurial Fellow by the University of Arizona’s Karl Eller College of Business and Public Administration. And he was chosen as “Ad Person of the Year” in 2005 by the American Advertising Federation for his outstanding achievements and contributions to the Ad community.

Tim has a strong commitment to helping future generations. For this reason, he chairs the board for the A.T. Still University School of Health Sciences and sits on the boards of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Global Health Advocacy Incubator. As Alternate Governor of the Phoenix Rising FC professional soccer team, he has also made a commitment to supporting youth soccer leagues all across the western United States.
