Tim is Airwave’s founder and former managing director; he is now a company director and managing director of sister company, Techlive International.
Experience and Background
Having completed a degree in MORSE (Mathematics, Operations Research, Statistics and Economics) at Warwick University, Tim joined Thorn EMI’s graduate scheme, fulfilling a longstanding desire to work in technology. A natural flair for business management saw a rapid progression within the company, culminating in the running of Thorn’s Interactive Hotel TV division.
Director roles at Telewest (now Virgin Media) and BSkyB enriched Tim’s development, however a lifetime ambition of owning his own business prompted the establishment of Airwave Europe Ltd. Tim’s unrelenting passion to be the best has underpinned Airwave’s reputation and growth to UK HTV market leader.
