New Chief Executive to drive business growth.

October 2018

After an extensive search, the Babbage Board has appointed Tim Jones as Chief Executive Officer to lead the company through its next phase of growth.

Tim joins Babbage this month after eight years as Chief Operating Officer at law firm Chapman Tripp where he gained a reputation as a strategic leader with a focus on team building and innovation. Prior to this, he held positions in corporate finance, information technology and Chartered accountancy.

His tenure in each of these roles was distinguished by the delivery of strategic priorities through collaborative leadership and building a client-focused culture.

Babbage Chairman, Malcolm Stapleton, said “Tim has significant experience in professional services and his skills are an ideal fit with Babbage’s offer of consultancy services across Architecture, Engineering, Land Development and Project Management.

“The Board is delighted to make this appointment as Tim brings a deep understanding of how a multi-disciplinary consultancy like Babbage can grow as a business and deliver outcomes that exceed client expectations.

“Our priorities in appointing a CEO included leadership credentials, an ability to achieve results against measurable objectives, personal skills to form enduring relationships with stakeholders and the experience to build a brand that attracts and retains talent.

“The appointment of Tim as CEO ticks all of these boxes and he was the unanimous choice to lead the firm in this critical leadership role.”
Reflecting on his appointment, Tim Jones said “I’m particularly excited about being part of a business in which clients are the key priority and consultants are aligned with client goals.”

“Babbage has a compelling blend of technical expertise, an unrivalled body of knowledge, and a proud record of innovation and collaboration over more than 80 years. This is a solid foundation to build upon and I will work closely with the Babbage team drawing on our collective skills to deliver innovative built solutions that are practical, cost effective and sustainable”.

Tim was a founding shareholder and a non-executive director of Appello Services Limited until the successful sale in 2015 of this funds management registry business. He has a Bachelor of Commerce degree majoring in accounting and finance from the University of Otago and is a Chartered Accountant, CA ANZ.

Tim lives in Mt Eden, Auckland, is married to Kate and they have three daughters.
