Tim Romani served as a traveling aide to Governor Jim Thompson from 1984 to 1985, an experience that changed the trajectory of Romani's life. Gov. Thompson affectionately referred to his traveling aids as bag boys, and Tim provides fascinating insights into both the governor and the duties of the position. As a result of that experience, Tim went on to work on planning for the new White Sox stadium in the late 1980s, and from there launched his own business, the ICON Venue Group, which specializes in project management for sports venues and entertainment developments.
