Financial Controller

Tim joined Xpedition in 2001 as part of Touchstone Group’s finance team. As the Xpedition division of Touchstone grew, there was a need to expand the finance team and Tim stepped into the newly created role as our Financial Controller in 2009.

As a fully qualified member of ACCA since 2008, Tim deals with all things finance for Xpedition, from managing the monthly accounts to seeing the annual audit signed off. He ensures that our suppliers are paid on time and that our clients pay their bills allowing us to continue delivering exceptional levels of service to them.

Outside of work Tim is kept busy by his young family and if he gets any spare time from them he can often be found hacking his way round Hertfordshire’s golf courses in an inexorable losing battle to get his handicap down to single figures!
