Tim James

Tim qualified as a Charted Management Accountant in 1994 and then moved into the oil and gas industry where he remained until joining Pink this year.

Tim spent 9 years with Premier Oil working in a variety of finance, audit, joint venture, commercial and economics roles covering oil and gas projects, firstly in their Pakistan office and then in London.

In 2004 Tim joined a small oil and gas consultancy, Beardall Parry & Associates, based in Marlow as Director of Economics. Services to industry included international fiscal advice, financial modelling for M&A transactions, AIM listing Competent Persons Reports and training. Tim particularly enjoyed the training aspect, running numerous courses internationally in the finance and economics field.

When the consultancy was acquired by a Fugro, a large multi-national oil and gas services company, Tim continued as Principal Economist.

Tim has now come full circle, returning to Marlow and very much looking forward to good times ahead with Pink!

Outside the working day Tim is a keen amateur musician singing with (and Treasurer of) the Wooburn Singers, a Buckinghamshire based chamber choir. He also plays the piano and is learning the ukulele!
