Tim is the founder and Managing Director of the group. He has 37 years of commercial property experience and his role is to devise and execute the company’s business strategy, identifying and realising the potential of properties across a multitude of sectors.
He made his first property investment at the age of just 17 - a rundown shop, which he bought for £6,250, refurbished and went on to rent to a succession of local businesses. His companies now manage over 11.5m sq ft of commercial real estate across the UK but his mantra remains unchanged from that first purchase – refurbish, let and re-gear.
Tim knows that you have to “lift the carpets” to gain a true understanding of an asset’s potential and he still adopts a hands-on approach to property management, an ethos that he has instilled in his 300-strong team. He is happiest when visiting sites, albeit remains strong to his North West roots, supporting a number of charitable causes and investing in the local community.
