Meet Tim VanderMel

I’m one of the Global Technology Advisors based out of Grand Rapids, MI where I was born and raised. I have the pleasure of being the first employee hired at C3 Technology Advisors and it’s been really fun watching the transformation of C3 and knowing where we’re headed.

I spent 6 years in the Michigan National Guard as an Infantryman and was fortunate enough to be deployed to Baghdad, Iraq from 2006-2007 and come home to tell about it. I had my fair share of good times and bad times, but really grateful that I was able to serve my country and come home to my family and friends and share the journey.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family: Stephanie (Wife), Charlee (Daughter), and Hudson (Son). We just started camping a few summers ago and we’re having a lot of fun with it. Even though I’m not joining the PGA Tour anytime soon, I also enjoy golfing and try to get out as much as life allows.

Moved 15 times in my life (a majority of those before the age of 18)

I definitely have an obsession with Mafia history and movies like the Godfather, Sopranos, Goodfellas, Carlito’s Way, Casino, etc.

Huge fan of anything Nike. If Nike made business suits, I would probably wear them.

Favorite quote, “I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying” – Michael Jordan
