Worcester Business Journal's 2014 40 Under Forty: Tim Cummings

Tim Cummings, Executive Director, Marlborough EDC --- 40 Under Forty Class of 2014

Birthplace: Stoneham

Residence: Jamaica Plain

High School: Burlington High School

Colleges and degrees earned: Bachelor’s degree, Suffolk University; master’s degree, Northeastern University

Career highlights: Being a part of Marlborough’s economic turnaround over the last two years. We, as a team, brought some of the largest employers in the commonwealth to the city, dropping the office vacancy rate by at least 12 percentage points. This translates into more than 1.2 million square feet of positive absorption.

Community involvement: Most of my community involvement stems from when I was a Rotarian in Burlington … I enjoy community service, and a particular event that comes to mind is the Thanksgiving Dinner giveaway, where we would give out complete Thanksgiving dinners the weekend before the holiday to families who needed a little assistance.

Ultimate career goal: To pursue municipal management at a higher level or go into real estate development.

Non-relatives you admire most: Bob Buckley, Bob Mercier and Charles Murphy.

Favorite book: “The Count of Monte Cristo,” by Alexander Dumas
