Tim was born and grew up in the home of UK stainless steelmaking,
Sheffield. Whilst at school he worked part-time for his father making
steelworks thermocouples and laboratory furnaces. After leaving school
he studied metallurgy at university and joined British Steel Stainless
immediately after graduating. A succession of industry mergers saw Tim
undertaking senior stainless technical, operations and supply chain roles
in the Netherlands, Sweden, and the UK before joining the ISSF in August
2019. During his career Tim also found time to study Goldratt’s teaching on
lean flow and operations, gain a post-graduate diploma in operations and
inventory management and a masters degree in business administration.
Away from work Tim still supports his boyhood football club, Sheffield
Wednesday and enjoys rock music, cycling, fine wines and craft ales.
