The Team 

 

Peter Timms | Founder and CEO

ptimms@ca-global.com

Peter Timms, Founder and CEOPeter Timms founded Corporate Advisors in 1998 following a corporate career rich in M&A transactional experience in both the US and Europe. A qualified accountant, he rose quickly to take his first Director and CFO role at age 22 with one of Europe's most acquisitive conglomerates. Five years with the international PA Consulting Group, in Corporate Strategy and M&A, led almost immediately to his first role as CEO of a public company - becoming the youngest, at that time, to reach the top position in a London-listed company. In this, and in subsequent roles located variously in the US and in Europe, he built a reputation for expertise in turnaround or in high growth situations, executing company sales and acquisitions across the US and Europe on a regular basis, to maximise shareholder value. He has served on three public company Boards and is a current member of the Advisory Board of Opus8, an investment group focused on middle-market buyouts, with interests in the US, Eastern Europe, Latin America and China.
