Tim is an experienced Chair and his portfolio includes Chair of Treatt PLC, Chair of City and Continental Ltd, Board Advisor to Allia, a social enterprise incubator and he is an Honorary Fellow at Cambridge Judge Business School.
Having joined not long before the Covid-19 pandemic, Tim has made a significant impact. James commented that ‘there is no doubt that we found the right Chair. Tim is calm, always makes time for us and has introduced a number of concepts ahead of Covid, that have proved to be excellent business decisions.’
Whilst the search for a new Chair was underway, Pure worked with a specialist business psychologist from OE Cam, (Cambridge based Psychologists), who facilitated Saville Wave Personality Profiles alongside 1-1 sessions with each Board member to discuss their aspirations, ambitions and development opportunities. This work has formed the foundation of the work that Tim is completing with the Board to enable the transition to a more strategic focus.
Pure Executive also spent time with eight of TMJ’s high performing, aspiring individuals that James had identified as potential managers and leaders of the future. The company has a culture of nurturing and developing talent through the sponsorship of Degrees and the ILM qualification at its on-site training centre, and it was important to identify the right type of learning for the next stage of their professional journey with TMJ.
In the meantime, our sister company Pure, have recruited several junior and middle management roles as we continue the partnership between our two organisations.
Over the past 12-18 months a strong lasting relationship has been formed, with a genuine respect between our organisations. Feedback from TMJ highlighted how warm, easy and approachable we were to work with, our questioning being thorough and appropriate so that we built a very good understanding from the outset.
‘Lynn and Jodie are good at challenging appropriately throughout the process and ensuring we don’t lose sight of our aim and they supported us at every stage. We look forward to continuing our work together over the foreseeable future as TMJ continues its growth journey.’
