As Managing Director at Wellspring Tim oversees our portfolio of current projects and the pipeline for new business.  He leads on major new opportunities and is building our team to deliver larger projects/programme components.

With 21 years’ experience as a consultant, team leader and senior manager, Tim has a track record of developing and successfully delivering projects in international development and the private sector.

Since joining Wellspring as a director at the start of 2021 Tim has overseen new projects in Africa with FCDO, GAIN, Rockefeller, IDRC and the development and roll out of our new training courses.  Alongside this, he leads on establishing new partnerships with larger suppliers in order to secure management and technical roles for Wellspring on multi-year implementation programmes.

Tim started his professional career as a management consultant with PwC and IBM, implementing business change projects in the UK and Europe.  He later joined DAI Europe during a period where the business grew rapidly to become a leading supplier to FCDO.  Tim led a team responsible for managing major new contracts in South Asia and Sub Saharan Africa.  This gave him the platform to take on senior roles and build teams at Crown Agents and then Plan International UK. At Crown Agents he won and started up major new projects in Myanmar and Nepal, and at Plan he established a commercial subsidiary and led the acquisition of Social Development Direct (a specialist consultancy firm).

Tim has a BSc Hons in Economics from Nottingham University and is CIMA qualified.
