Nathan Timmerman

Professional Sales and Marketing | Fort Wayne, Indiana

Finding His Voice

Since he was 13, Nathan Timmerman had served the role of caretaker in his family, moving in with an uncle disabled by muscular dystrophy, cooking meals and helping him get around. “I just moved in when the family needed me,” he says.

Consequently, with his attention focused on helping others, Nathan’s own ambitions were put on hold. That changed at MU where the focus was put on him. “When I came to Manchester, I felt like a lot of professors recognized my potential, and they pushed me to meet it.”

And meet it, he has. With a double major in marketing and professional sales, Nathan has excelled – achieving a 3.9 GPA, serving two internships and earning an interview with the Indiana Pacers – and he’s on track to graduate a semester early.

What People May Not Know About MU

How deeply each professor cares about every single student and their potential. We’re truly just a big family.

Advice for Students Looking at MU

Whatever is holding you back from fully committing, just ask yourself if it’s really that much of a worry. It’s all about fit. Visit campus again, talk to a current student, and really check out MU’s culture. You won’t find any other community that’s this tight-knit.

“I’m living proof that you can have a ton of success here.”

SALES IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS
Guided by his experience in assisting others, Nathan has adapted well to the MU College of Business’ approach to professional sales, “… because I believe good sales is about helping people,” says Nathan.
