TIMOTHY DALRYMPLE, PHD, DIRECTOR OF MARKETING

Timothy Dalrymple, as CEO of Polymath Innovations, is director of marketing for Generational Financial Partners. He was an elite athlete, a writer and an academic for most of his life, until he entered the world of new media in 2009 to help launch Patheos.com. On behalf of Polymath Innovations, he has joined the Generational Financial Partners team to further our marketing development and design. Having engaged Timothy and his firm for marketing services, we are better able to convey our message.

With degrees from Stanford University and Princeton Theological Seminary, sojourns at Oxford and two Chinese universities, and a doctorate from Harvard University, he’s more educated than a decent person should be. The recipient of numerous awards for his writing and teaching, he now writes books and articles that appear in places like Washington Post, Christianity Today and of course Patheos — but when his elder daughter calls him a “fake doctor” it reminds him he’s not that important in the grand scheme of things.
