Tim Hennessey, President and Founder

Tim Hennessey’s keen understanding of the legislative and political process has been honed during a career in government and association management that has spanned over thirty-three years.

Tim Hennessey has led the Consulting4Biz team for a quarter-century, during which time he has worked on behalf of the firm’s clients to positively affect policy in fields as diverse as healthcare, transportation, business, and tourism. He serves as a lobbyist, while also specializing in association management, public relations strategies, executive and financial management, and strategic planning.

Prior to founding the firm in 1982, Mr. Hennessey was selected in a nationwide search to serve as the president of the Illinois Transportation Commission, a coalition of major Illinois corporations including Caterpillar and John Deere. In this important leadership position he led the drive for one of the most extensive transportation funding bills in state history, resulting in what would be the first major funding increase for Illinois highways in over 15 years.

Mr. Hennessey began his career in government and association management in 1974 when he was hired as the associate director of the St. Louis County Municipal League. He later served as Executive Director of the Missouri Association of Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors.

Mr. Hennessey earned a bachelor’s degree in public administration and economics from Drake University in 1974, and an MBA from Southern Illinois University in 1978.
