Tim Hames


Tim is a consultant at PCB Partners specialising in the private equity sector. He started his career as an academic as a Lecturer in Politics at Oxford University. He then moved to The Times where he became an Assistant Editor, columnist and the chief leader writer for the newspaper.

Tim moved on to the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVCA) initially as Head of Public Affairs and Communications and then as Director General of the organisation from 2013-2019. He is now a writer, consultant and senior adviser.

"We engaged PCB to assist us sourcing a distinct target asset in a specific segment. The task was essential to BIP's strategy to plug a gap in its capability to drive growth and momentum in key markets. It needed to be done discreetly and at pace, but with utmost professional qualification. Ben and Brett’s knowledge covers the gamut of the consulting market with deep and strong relationships with key mid-size European consulting assets. The PCB team delivered to the brief with a level of service that fully satisfied BIP and the firm would not hesitate in re-engaging to help in future critical activity."
