Tim Faber Biography

Tim Faber is president of Faber Products LLC, an e-commerce-based personal care products company, and is senior vice president of Excelerate Automotive Solutions, a private equity-backed national outsourcing firm that services the auto dealership industry. He is a former senior marketing representative with IBM.

Faber began his entrepreneurial career while still a student at the University of South Carolina, raising capital for oil and gas shallow well drilling in Kentucky.

In 1987 he started his first company–U.S. Personnel–with his wife, Karen Schmidt Faber, an alumnus of the Darla Moore School of Business. The company grew to include 20 southeastern locations with more than $45 million of revenue. When the company was sold to a consolidator in Texas, Faber assumed the role of COO over this $400 million firm.

Faber has been involved in more than nine start-ups in such areas as orthopedic distribution, systems integration, executive recruiting, wholesale bakery and commercial playground equipment. He has extensive experience working with private equity groups and has played a variety of roles raising venture capital.

Among his accomplishments, he endowed the Faber Entrepreneurship Center at the Moore School. His enterprises were twice-recognized in Inc. Magazine’s Inc 500 list of fastest growing companies, and he has twice been named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young. In addition, Faber is a former board member of the S.C. Philharmonic. He is a 1983 cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina, with a major in computer science and a minor in finance.
