E. Timothy Marshall, FASLA



Tim Marshall, principal and owner of ETM Associates, LLC has been involved with public space management for 30 years. Prior to establishing his office in Highland Park, New Jersey, he served as the Deputy Administrator and Vice President for New York City’s Central Park Conservancy. During his tenure with the Conservancy he was involved in the development of the Central Park Restoration and Management Plan, and was directly responsible for its on-going implementation, as well as the day-to-day management of this iconic public space.


Since forming ETM, Tim has served as the driving force behind an impressive list of significant national and international public space projects. His extensive hands-on experience in the field has given him an intimate knowledge of park operations and management, and a robust approach to problem-solving, funding and public/private involvement.


Tim’s philosophy is rooted in a belief that successful public spaces are achieved through deliberate and careful planning. His work is guided by the notion that parks and other public spaces that flourish are those that are not simply aesthetically pleasing, but those that rise above the commonplace in the quality of design, programming, facilities and maintenance.


Tim was named a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2016.
