About Tim Dittloff

My interest and the study of sailing and navigation goes all the way back to grade school.

While my dad would watch and talk with the fishermen in the harbor, I found more interest in the sailboats in the harbor. I was the odd kid as a freshman in high school learning from lectures at the Wisconsin Marine Historical Association while my friends were playing video games and listening to music.

While sailing and navigation on the waterways of the world has always intrigued me, it wasn’t until college that I took my first official sailing lesson.

The quest for leadership learning has taken much of the same course

From the time I was in high school, I picked up one leadership book after the next. I graduated from college with a BA in Public Communication from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and received a Master’s of Science Degree in Education from Concordia University-Wisconsin.

The many lessons learned throughout high school and college that led to my experiences in the corporate world and the waterways is what brings me to your organization today.
