:: Tim Chamberlain

Tim Chamberlain, has more than ten years’ experience in information technology including software development, business analysis and project management. For the past decade, Mr. Chamberlain has been using his ability to bring technical topics to a non-technical audience to build both understanding and relationships for his organizations. His natural tendency towards prompt and open communication and ability to foster the same in work groups has made Mr. Chamberlain a sought after talent in both the private and public sectors.

Mr. Chamberlain began his career with the University of Texas at Austin in 2000 as a software developer, leading several software teams along the way. He oversaw the rollout of the first UT Austin shopping cart application, as well as managed the systems that controlled mass e-mail communications with campus. While he enjoyed the coding side of his work, he soon found that his communication, service and negotiation talents were in great demand to ensure client satisfaction. This led Mr. Chamberlain to his current role as an expert in the “soft skills” needed in today’s work environment.

In 2008, Mr. Chamberlain moved to the construction arm of UT System where he was responsible for restructuring business processes to align with new software systems. He spent much of his time facilitating meetings between business areas in order to establish goals, tweak processes and garner buy-in for the new software. In addition, Mr. Chamberlain ensured that all of the users of new software and processes had proper training—training designed and conducted by him.

Mr. Chamberlain holds bachelor’s degrees in Marketing and Journalism from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and is a graduate of the UT Austin ITS Analyst Training Program.
