Tim Blackstone has focused, for more than 10 years, on the placement of senior Interims across all functional disciplines. Recognised as a veteran practitioner, he was a founding Partner in the rebuilding of the Boyden Interim Management practice from 2008. Along with colleague Patrique Habboo, they built the business to be considered the premier provider of top-level Interim executives – knowledge and expertise that they now combine within Matrix Interim Management.
Prior to Interim Management, Tim has operated at Board and Managing Director/CEO levels within major FMCG and financial services multinational corporations and apart from the UK, he has worked across many European countries as well as extensively in Australia and North America.
Following his corporate career, Tim spent three years within management consultancy building a UK practice for a US parent and then, convinced that Interim was the resourcing solution to many short term change needs, spent a period working as an Interim Manager before becoming the top fee earner at Brooklands Executives for 4 years as a top-tier provider of Interim Managers. Following a move to BIE, Tim moved to Boyden Interim in April 2008 where once again he was consistently the top fee-earner.
Companies he has worked for include ICI, Golden Wonder Foods, Avon Cosmetics, Warner Lambert (now Pfizer), CIGNA (now ACE Insurance), Service Corporation International and De Novo Corporation. He is a graduate in Business Studies with a specialism in Marketing.
