“My confidence in Tim has been demonstrated through Q4 of 2021. He is an excellent match for this position and a strong asset to the Becker Logistics executive team. He has the skills, patience and acumen to assist with future acquisitions, diligence and growth of the company,” says CEO Jim Becker.
Prior to accepting this position, Mr. McKean served as Vice President Finance and CFO OU Americas at Morton Salt for the last seven years. Tim graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana with a degree from the Miller College of Business and has a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern University – Kellogg School of Management.

Becker Logistics grew from $73M in 2020 to $125M in 2021 reporting an organic growth of over 71%. This level of growth is not uncommon for Becker Logistics over the last ten years according to Jim Becker. “Over the past 25 years when we have planned for exponential growth, there were other areas we failed to look at and we grew from each and every one of them, helping us assist in this exponential growth. Today times are different. We have an excellent board, great board of advisors and a capable executive management team to steer us into the future. We are targeting similar growth in 2022.
“As an organization grows quickly, there are other facets that a company has to put time and effort into to make sure that we are heading towards true north. Bringing Tim on now while targeting this growth allows us to explore what we need. Additionally, our lead board of director that heads up the financial committee will work with Tim to carry out the financial vision of the company. Tim’s accountability is what he brings to our organization will help with our growth. We are thrilled to have Tim with us on this journey guiding Becker Logistics and helping us to drive toward our objectives.”
