Tim Leatherman…
A native Oregonian, Tim received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University in 1970. Time spent traveling abroad ultimately led to the Leatherman multipurpose tool concept.  From the beginning, Tim has built the company on a simple philosophy: manufacture product on time, meet specifications, increase value, and provide a pleasant work environment. When asked about the company’s devotion to quality, Tim simply replies, “My name is on every tool.”  Although Tim is now retired, he still visits the factory at least every month and plays an active role in the direction the company is going, including many trips abroad to visit with Leatherman’s extensive network of international distributors.
