Tim brings an immense wealth of experience to Team Consulting from his career in the life sciences and healthcare industries. He has worked for a variety of medical companies across the UK, Europe and US, from large pharmacos including GSK and Philips, to a portfolio of relatively small VC-backed tech companies. Tim is a Professor of Practice at King’s College London and was Vice-Chair of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for nearly seven years.
“I’ve had a rather eclectic career. Having started out in biochemistry in the mid-80s, I’ve worked in the life sciences industry for over 35 years. I have a keen interest in public policy, particularly identifying how to improve healthcare. As a Professor at King’s, I lecture on finance and entrepreneurship, while I also lecture at UCL on global health. I do what I do because I love it, and I’m lucky.”
“Looking at Team Consulting, it’s clear there are a number of different market segments to focus on. Team has a great franchise in drug delivery and a strong presence in MedTech, however it’s important we continue developing in adjacent sectors as well. My role here is to think about what the world will look like 15 years from now and plan for that. We need to try and identify where we want to get to and ensure we have the best team to get us there. It’s about evolution, not revolution.”
