Tim Karcher

Tim Karcher serves as a Leadership and Organizational Culture Expert for Sutherland Partnership, after having served over 25 years as a U.S. Army Infantry officer.  During his military career, Karcher led, trained, and commanded multiple organizations, up to battalion-level.  Throughout his career, he focused on assessing individual and unit culture and values, and developing sound plans to enhance unit effectiveness.  His focus on leader development, counseling, and mentorship ensured that his subordinate leaders were up to every challenge.  Karcher understands how to develop exceptional teams, communicate sound guidance and vision, and lead from the front, in the most challenging environments.

During the latter half of his career, Karcher served multiple combat deployments in Iraq, and was twice wounded leading his Soldiers in combat operations.   During his third deployment to Iraq, while leading a mounted patrol, Karcher’s vehicle was struck by a specialized explosive device that penetrated the vehicle’s armor and destroyed his legs.  As a result of these injuries, he lost both of his legs above the knees.  After a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation, Karcher returned to duty, serving three more years in the U.S. Army before retiring in the fall of 2015.

Karcher also serves as the Director of Outreach Development and Strategic Planning for the No Greater Sacrifice Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to providing a debt-free college education to the children of our nation’s fallen and severely wounded Service members.

Awards and decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, the Purple Heart, and the Presidential Unit Citation.  In 2012, the University of Missouri recognized Karcher as a Distinguished Alumni.  Prior to joining the staff of No Greater Sacrifice, the Foundation presented Karcher their 2015 Liberty Award, to honor his selfless sacrifice to our nation.
