Lord Rothermere said: “We are very pleased to have Tim join us. His range of skills and experience working within an international organisation with a focus on data, content and analytics are highly complementary to DMGT's global businesses.

"His prior roles working for portfolio companies in B2B information, events and media sectors with a significant US presence are aligned with DMGT's businesses and overall Group focus.

“He has a strong track record of delivery in a number of key areas, not just finance and treasury but also oversight of investment activities, M&A and restructuring and internal audit.”
