Tim Haak and his wife Kristin have called Crooked Creek their home for more than 18 years when they moved their young family here from Pittsburgh. They quickly got involved in the neighborhood tennis leagues and their four daughters quickly took to the water, swimming every summer for the
Crooked Creek Crocodiles for more than a decade. Tim took great pride in coaching his daughters’ recreational soccer teams and celebrating the occasional victories.
Their daughters have since graduated (one Bulldog and three Yellow Jackets) but have fond memories of growing up in Crooked Creek and participating in many events with their friends such as watching the fireworks every Fourth of July, hunting for Easter Eggs, trick or treating, and participating in summer tennis camps. With more time on his hands Tim has taken up golf at our neighborhood Iron Horse Club and has lots of room for improvement. Tim believes Crooked Creek is a special place to raise a family and he’s delighted to have
so many young families moving into our community. One of his primary goals as an HOA Board member is to help foster the same unity, harmony, and collegiality that he and his family have experienced from their friends and neighbors, while ensuring sound financial footing for many years to come.
Tim graduated from Penn State with a BS in Finance and earned an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. He started his professional career at Goldman Sachs & Co, then spent many years working for McGraw Hill, and currently works as a Vice President of University Partnerships for Keypath Education where he helps universities develop and market online degree programs.
