Timothy M. Stratman

Timothy M. Stratman is founder and President of Stratman Partners Executive Coaching, Inc., a Chicago-based coaching firm focused on helping executives become more effective leaders. He is retained by C-Level executives and their organizations to provide one-on-one coaching, executive team development, strategic visioning, and execution planning facilitation. Stratman has worked with executives across a diverse set of industry verticals covering both private and publicly held companies. In addition to his C-Level practice, he has a sub-specialty practice focused on helping senior supply management executives improve their enterprise-wide effectiveness.

Stratman developed his core belief in the power of senior level executive coaching during his 25-year career in the Fortune 500. Emerging from practical experience, his coaching expertise evolved during a career that progressed through a series of diverse roles and challenges. These included P&L responsibility, global senior sales and marketing leadership, and supply management.

For over 20 years, Stratman held increasingly responsible positions with RR Donnelley. As President of RRD Direct, he lead a business serving one of Donnelley's fastest growing segments: consumer and business based direct marketers. During his tenure as SVP of Supply Chain Management, Stratman played a critical leadership role in bringing industry-wide standardization to an extremely dysfunctional supply chain. His leadership was cited in James Champy's book, X-Engineering the Corporation to illustrate the power of extending strategic business processes across traditional boundaries.

Stratman received a BA in Marketing from Michigan State University.
