Tim Ziakas, CEO Parkview Sports Group
After graduating in 2004 with a bachelors degree in Economics from Wheaton College (MA) where Tim was co-captain and 4 year starter at 2B on the nationally ranked baseball team he was hired by the privately traded financial firm First Investors Corporation. After securing his Series 6, 63, 26, and Life Insurance licenses he was promoted from the Fairfield, NJ office to the Park Avenue Office in Midtown, NYC. With clients from around the tri-state area and assets under management of $10 million by the age of 24 Tim was promoted to Assistant Branch Manager position and was recognized as one of the top 5 sales supervisors in the entire company of over 50 offices nationwide.
With offers on the table to take over an existing office in Boston or Washington D.C., Tim was also approached and solicited to purchase a baseball and softball facility in his hometown of Roxbury, NJ. With his experience in sales, finance, providing private baseball training and a passion for customer service, ultimately entrepreneurship was the final decision.
In 2007 RBI’s Baseball and Softball Facility was now being transformed from a run down baseball facility into a functional, organized, and efficient training facility known throughout Morris County. In 3 short years RBI’s more than doubled it’s revenue and was in a position to expand to a larger facility. In 2011 RBI’s moved to Randolph, NJ becoming North Jersey’s most complete and fully functional baseball and softball facility in North Jersey.
Starting from a shell of a company and growing to a multiple revenue streamed sports facility with a strong presence in the community was a challenging road with obstacles along the way. These experiences has allowed Parkview Sports Group to to parlay those experiences in running events, leagues, teams, private training, and operating a sports facility into helping others that share that same passion.
