As a clinical faculty member in the Accounting Department, Tim Radermacher champions the tax discipline for the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business. In addition to teaching tax coursework, he facilitates the volunteer income tax assistance programs resourced by St. Thomas students. His primary teaching includes undergraduate courses on tax accounting and financial accounting, business taxation in the MBA program, and tax research and CPA exam preparation in the MS in Accountancy program.

Radermacher loves introducing the vast subject of tax to accounting students. He is energized by the challenge of demystifying this complex subject and thrives on igniting and cultivating a passion for tax in students who may be contemplating this field for their careers. He also strives to create an experiential and team-based learning environment that is representative of the work setting his students will likely encounter in their professional careers.

Radermacher joined the faculty from Target Corporation where he was the senior director of income tax. He spent 25 years in the Twin Cities business community where, in addition to Target Corporation, Radermacher enjoyed roles with Deloitte, Sanofi, GE, and MTS. His primary experience is with corporate taxation. He also held corporate roles in finance and treasury.

Throughout his career, Radermacher worked closely with tax and finance experts to turn ideas into results—and jobs into vocations. His goal is to bring this same level of energy and sense of purpose into the classroom.
