  • 1. 2013 NextWorks. Content is proprietary and confidential. Tim Bahr CEO, NextWorks Tim has been an industry leader and innovator in video marketing and broadcast public relations for over 25 years. Over his career he has counseled the nations leading healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical companies and consumer brands in the use of video as a marketing tool. Tim formed NextWorks to help organizations engage their target audiences with highly efficient, informative and professionally produced video content on an ongoing basis. By combining new interactive distribution platforms with leading social media analytics, NextWorks is opening a window to a new era in communications between organizations and their various audiences. Prior to his latest venture Tim built two of the most successful companies in the broadcast public relations/video marketing space. In 2002 he was engaged by PR Newswire, a market leader in text news distribution, to build a video production and distribution subsidiary called MultiVu. Recognizing opportunities created by the expansion of broadband at the time, Tim initiated a strategy to add web distribution of all of MultiVus broadcast products offerings. He also created new web-based programming that allowed clients to package and deliver video, photos and text to online audiences. As a result of this first mover strategy, MultiVu quickly became one of the countrys largest producers of corporate sponsored web-based video. Before creating MultiVu, Tim co-founded the Orbis Broadcast Group where he created the first weekly medical TV news feed with the American Medical Associations JAMA Report. He established similar programming for The National Institutes of Health, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The American Academy of Pediatricians and The American Dental Association, as well as the worlds leading pharmaceutical companies. He later expanded the companys television content to the Internet and created one of the first consumer healthcare websites. When Orbis was sold in 2000, it was the nations leading producer and distributor of health related video.
