Our Team

Tim Ogden

Chief Executive Officer

Tim started Blue Ivy Partners in 2016 with the vision to serve Federal customers and early stage product companies.  He is inspired to work alongside government leaders, innovators, and a new generation of world-class product companies.

With a diverse background that began at the Naval Academy with a degree in general engineering, he then served as a reconnaissance communications officer in the Marine Corps.  It wasn’t long before he was leading national sales teams at Cisco, and launching Arista’s Federal business, which led to an IPO and today’s $40B valuation. 

Ever striving to give back, Tim currently serves on the board of a global non-profit, Wine to Water, which works tirelessly to provide clean and safe water to communities around the globe without access to it. 

His proudest achievement: his three sons, Jack, Peter, and Thomas.  These three make up his favorite golf team when they are all together, with an ambitious goal to play each of the top 25 courses around the world in 25 years. They’ve completed two already, and hope to stay on track for the next 23 years!
