Impact & Growth

Darby Creek’s focus is on impact and growth. We look at growth and change as a way to reach impact-based goals. Instead of growth for growth’s sake, our goals are to drive community impact through employee development and critical supplier support.


Tim Barbis founded Darby Creek in 2015.  His goal was to partner with small businesses over the long-term. As a result, Darby Creek works with companies to perform well for the next 100 years, not just the next quarter.
