Tim is a founding partner & CEO of Laguna Bay. Drawing upon experience and networks forged over a lifetime in Australian Agribusiness, Tim is a successful private investor, specialising in commodities and agriculture.
Tim was raised on a sheep and cattle farm in Western Queensland and completed a Diploma of Agribusiness at the prestigious Marcus Oldham Farm Management College in Geelong, Victoria.
At the age of 20, he started an aerial livestock mustering business in Northern Australia. At 24, Tim purchased a small vineyard with his brother Rob. Over the next seven years the brothers turned this into one of Australia’s largest privately owned vineyards. In 2001 they sold the majority of their holdings, resulting in Tim being named in Rural Press’s top young achievers. Tim is a non-executive director of Landfill Gas Industries and a founding shareholder of Boundary Bend Ltd, which is now the largest producer of extra virgin olive oil in the Southern Hemisphere and ranks in the top 10 largest single olive oil producers in the world.
Tim maintains an impressive track record of combining agricultural, corporate and social responsibilities to create large-scale, investment-grade, managed financial products.
