“We are excited about the experience that Tim brings to Oppenheimer. We look

Investment Management, which he joined in 2000. At Pioneer, he was a critical
part of a team that launched two closed-end mutual funds and managed those
funds’ high yield portfolios. He also was part of the 2006 launch of an
open-end pure high yield tax-exempt mutual fund that was made public in 2007.
This fund grew from seed capital of $3 million to over $850 million and
achieved the highest return of all tax exempt funds as rated by Lipper and
Morningstar in 2010.
Before joining Pioneer, Tim underwrote high yield tax exempt health care
issues at Commerce Capital Markets. He also has been a high-yield analyst and
restructuring specialist at Eaton Vance. He earned his MBA at Cornell and his
Bachelor’s degree at Hamilton College.
