Meet The Team.phtml
Tim is the founder and powerhouse behind JAZ , the motivating force and the inspiration for the rest of us with his tireless energy, philosophic outlook and hard-working attitude.
Over the last 15 years Tim has worked on so many projects it's difficult for him to have a favourite. One recent job that comes to mind was working as a part of the bid team involved in getting the Super 14 rugby franchise for Perth. Being in the club rooms when the decision was announced was a real buzz!
He brings integrity, honesty and understanding gained through experience, as well as a level-headed ability to deal rationally and calmly with difficult situations. Tim is passionate about good coffee, branding and strategic thinking and loves the big picture stuff, much more than being mired down in boggy details. I guess the ability to think big is the reason why he's the boss.. :)
