Having been involved in starting NVM up back in the 1980s, along with Alastair Conn and Michael Denny, Tim has played a key role as the firm has grown to become one of the UK’s leading venture capital companies. He is now responsible for building the VCT portfolio and raising VCT funds and is also the non-executive director of Northern Venture Trust PLC and Northern 3 VCT PLC.
Tim represents NVM on the board of Clarilis, Newcells Biotech, Channel Mum, and Intuitive and also works with Alaric Systems, Control Risks Group, Liquidlogic, TFB, Keith Prowse and DxS – to name but a few.
He is also currently the Chairman of the recently formed Venture Capital Trust Association (VCTA) which represents nine of the largest venture capital trust managers in the UK.
Prior to founding NVM, in his very early career, Tim was an officer in the Royal Navy. When not at NVM I can be found on the Isle of Wight sailing with friends and racing competitively.
