Tim Huff is the Vice President of Leadership Development at Turknett Leadership Group, a 36-year-old company based in Atlanta with executive coaching and leadership development corporate clients across the United States and in several countries.
With nearly 30 years of experience, Tim built his leadership foundation by serving 14 years as an Infantry Officer in the U.S. Army and National Guard, including graduating from Ranger School, the Army’s premier Infantry Leadership school. He capped his service with a year in Afghanistan as the Chief of Operations for a brigade responsible for training and maintaining the Afghan National Army.
Always fascinated with the power of technology, Tim began a career in Information Technology with The Walt Disney Company in Orlando, Florida.

Having a passion for helping leaders and executives harness the greatness that exists within themselves, Tim became a certified Executive Coach and launched Platinum Level Leadership in early 2020. Enjoying success and fulfillment as an independent coach, he decided to transition from being a full-time IT leader to a full-time coach in early 2022, with an invitation to join Turknett Leadership Group. At Turknett, Tim is helping to expand the business and spread Leadership Character around the world, creating leaders everywhere who live and lead with integrity, respect, and responsibility.
