Tim leads Somo’s Product Management team, providing support, mentoring, quality control and process refinement for Somo’s talented group of product managers. The team’s job is to bring together creative, commercial and technical perspectives, offering vision and direction to our clients in finding the best solutions to their business challenges. Activities range from research and consultancy assignments to detailed specification and product ownership through delivery. Tim’s focus is on growing and maturing the team around core principles of passion for quality, honest advice and creating great experiences for clients and end users.

Tim’s background is in software development, consultancy and mobile product management. Before joining Somo he worked on some of the UK’s most successful and popular mobile services in transport and travel, for clients including Transport for London, National Rail Enquiries, thetrainline and Stansted Airport.

In the days before the explosion of mobile technology Tim worked for twelve years in management consultancy, rising from software developer to senior manager at Arthur Andersen and Deloitte. During this first phase of his career he specialised in the design and implementation of enterprise systems for tax practitioners, ultimately having product ownership of market leading solutions used by the majority of the FTSE 100.
