Tim Chavez (Acoma Pueblo) honored by New Mexico business publication.
ALBUQUERQUE, NM —November 13, 2017 — Timothy J. Chavez, President and CEO of Keres Consulting, Inc. (Keres) - a Native American-owned professional services company headquartered in Albuquerque, was honored as one of Albuquerque Business First’s Diverse Business Leaders. Tim was honored at the 2017 awards luncheon event on November 2nd.
"As a Native American, I am able to appreciate what our Creator has provided," Tim said. "Keres and I have benefited from government business development programs. Keres has leveraged these opportunities to get our foot in the door and prove our value. We carry these opportunities over to other aspects of business, which contributes to a circle of development for other people of diversity."
In opening his own business, Tim followed in the footsteps of his grandmother who operated a store out of her home on the Acoma Reservation and was known for having the only working doorbell on the reservation at the time.
Tim holds the title of Tribal Councilman at the Pueblo of Acoma in addition to being President and CEO of Keres. He also founded a broad-based supply company, NativeVet Materiel, in 2012, that provides medical and non-medical supplies to IHS, BIA, and tribal departments. Tim also volunteers for numerous local charities, including Roadrunner Food Bank, Ranchito de los Niños, and Ronald McDonald House, alongside his employees.
“I am humbled by this honor,” Tim said. “At a time we reflect on our blessings, I am grateful to those who helped pave the path for me, so I may leave it in a better place for the Native American leaders who will come after me.”
