With nearly 30 years’ experience of working in a development/asset management background, Tim carries a wealth of knowledge that will help drive RV forward to deliver its strategic goals.

Tim’s passion for creating incredible places sustainably is a strong thread that runs through all his decision making. His previous roles saw him hold a variety of senior positions leading development and portfolio teams for two major PLCs, with projects spanning across London and the rest of the UK. Adding to those core foundations, he is very much driven by social purpose and, in this context, the RV vision resonates strongly with him as we create fantastic new communities whilst also substantially improving our operational villages.

Tim works directly with our key stakeholders to bring our sustainability strategy to life, instigating positive change for the UK’s retirement community.
