Tim is a chartered surveyor with 13 years’ experience in valuing hotels and other leisure businesses. He recently headed the hotels team at HLL Humberts Leisure. On taking up his new appointment Tim commented, "Whilst it was a difficult decision to leave Humberts Leisure, given their reputation in the market, the opportunity to join HVS with greater exposure to international markets was too exciting to ignore. I look forward to further expanding the business and reputation of HVS as the market-leading international hotel consultants.”

Commenting on Tim’s appointment, HVS London’s managing director Russell Kett added, “It is equally exciting that someone of Tim’s calibre has joined us to enhance our 40-strong team in London. I greatly look forward to him strengthening and broadening our relationship with clients in all aspects of their hotel valuation needs.”
