Tim Attlee - Director of Chemicals, Big Man Washes, Inc.

Tim was born and raised in Durban, South Africa. His mother and 2 sisters still reside in South Africa, and his brother is in London, UK.

In high school, Tim spent many school breaks working for his father in his construction company building a full line of structures including homes, commercial buildings, office buildings, and hospitals. He learned the trade from the ground up and quickly became skilled in all scopes including concrete work, brick laying, and carpentry. When he was not working at his fatherís company, Tim spent a lot of time playing sports. As a very athletic person, he participated in several sports including rugby, athletics, squash, and water sports.

After graduating in 1980, Tim attended compulsory military training for 2 years with the South African Air Force where he served as a radar technician.

When Tim returned from the military he joined his fatherís company as a Contracts Manager and managed all aspects and phases of company construction projects. During this time he also continued with studies and obtained his diploma in Project Management. As the business grew so did Timís role in the business and eventually Tim became a partner, and performed as Projects Director until deciding to immigrate his family to the USA in 1994.

As a method of the entry visa to the United States, Tim was required to meet stringent requirements by forming a new business, becoming an employer, and making a profit in the first year. In order to meet many of the requirements, Tim started a subsidiary construction business in Hardscape Construction and Landscaping. After great success and growing the company, he eventually sold out in 2000 and started a new commercial contracting company. After several business setbacks including a fall through of the original business sale, and client bankruptcies, Tim closed all business operations and went to work for Tridal as a Projects Manager in their landscape division Ė that was until they closed the landscape division down in 2005.

Tim then joined a friend in his business for a year before venturing on his own again in 2006 doing construction and remodeling work.

One of those projects was performed for Big Man Washes, and the rest all becomes history!

Tim and his wife Veronica currently live in McKinney. They have 2 sons, Keegan & Ryan, 1 daughter Jayde, and are also very proud grandparents of 2 girls, Sheyn & Ashlyn.

When he is not working, Tim enjoys golf, running, snow skiing, water skiing, traveling, and spending time with his family.
