I have known Tim for almost 10 years which spanned his time and Lend Lease, Leighton and Diyar. Tim understands the development process well and always brought an innovative yet  disciplined approach to the inception and execution stages of projects we worked together on. I have no hesitation in vouching for his capability and integrity.
