Tim is moving from his current post as Chief Executive of the Manx Wildlife Trust. Prior to that he managed a complex partnership programme at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and was Biodiversity Manager at Lancashire Wildlife Trust. His background is in environmental biology and his specific conservation interests include landscape-scale conservation and restoration.
Tim will start in post at the end of November and succeeds Simon Bentley, who has been Trust Director since 2001 and is taking up a new role as Project Director for Leicester Cathedral Revealed - a major £11.3m project to restore the Cathedral, protecting its historic setting and renewing its sacred spaces.
“With such a legacy, I’m excited to have the privilege to work with everyone involved at Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust. More than ever we need to be enabling nature’s recovery, and I can’t wait to move back to the UK and pick up the role from Simon’s safe hands. Who wouldn’t love such an opportunity!”
