Born and raised in Sydney, Tim’s first taste of hospitality was that of a luggage porter and concierge at the Sheraton on the Park which cemented his passion for the hotel industry. From this point on, a desire to experience all the world had to offer was developed and he has never looked back.
In his early career days, Tim gained experience in operations in downtown international hotels, Canadian ski resorts and remote island resorts which provided a strong foundation for leadership positions to follow. Several contracts onboard Carnival Cruise Liners based out of the United States managing food and beverage outlets exposed Tim to large-scale logistic operations where a firm regiment and attention to detail were paramount.
Tim completed a Bachelor of Business degree and pursued management roles in luxury hotels including managing a boutique hotel in Vancouver Canada before landing a dream job.
Travelling the world, he assessed hundreds of the world’s leading luxury hotels and resorts for groups such as Four Seasons, Marriot, IHG, Mandarin Oriental, Jumeirah, Dorchester, Langham and Leading Hotels of the World and many other leading groups. Consulting to senior executive teams on operational best practices enhanced his expertise and gained Tim invaluable insight.
“These experiences were beyond my imagination and allowed me to network with an amazing array of hoteliers, both management and owners of various cultures,” Tim says.
“Not only did this provide me with a deep understanding of the demands and requirements of owners, the interactions with the world’s best hoteliers delivered the most rewarding moments in the role.”
After close to a decade based in Vancouver, Tim and his young family returned home to Sydney. A successful tenure as Development Director with Choice Hotels Asia-Pac reaffirmed his focus on leveraging a strong career in operations for the purpose of helping owners maximise their assets.
Tim has thoroughly enjoyed growing a strong network of accommodation owners across the country, which has led him to Resort Brokers.
When not working, you can find Tim on a golf course and when time permits, back in Canada with family enjoying skiing the mountains of British Columbia. He’s a passionate rugby and cricket supporter, and loves refining his painting skills with oils, acrylics, and pastels. He has a deep seeded respect and love for the bush from spending much of his childhood at his family sheep farm in the New South Wales southern tablelands.
As a Sydney local, Tim possesses a sound knowledge of this key Australian market. Bolstered by significant experience working with assets from motels to large-scale hotels, Tim’s pursuit is to ensure owner’s goals and expectations are exceeded.
“Whether it’s a small motel or a large CBD hotel, the outcome for the investor is consistent,” he says.
“I am most excited to leverage my experience and knowledge to service my clients to ensure success for all involved.”
