Before joining Edelman in 2012 he was the business and technology editor of BBC News Online, which reached several million readers every day. He was a regular commentator – online and on air – on the technology industry and global economic issues.
For three years, until 2010, he combined his online role with taking charge of the BBC’s business output on domestic radio news programmes across three national networks. Tim was a member of the team that launched the BBC’s first online news service in May 1997. He joined the fledgling online venture from BBC World Service radio.
While at the BBC, he attended for nine years running the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos as a media leader; he now supports clients attending the WEF. Tim is a graduate of the German School of Journalism in Munich and holds a PhD in political science from Free University Berlin.
Tim is fluent in English and German.
