Our team

Tim Southern


Tim Southern is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

Prior to starting Southern Consulting in 2003, Tim had been a finance director in industry and commerce for over 15 years. During that time he worked in a number of different industries including distribution, professional services, oil & gas and energy, within both multinational and SME environments.

He honed his skills in financial & management reporting, acquisitions, mergers and disposals and financial systems implementation.

Tim Southern is able to bring a wealth of experience to his owner-managed clients, offering pragmatic advice and practical solutions to business and financial issues. This enables owner-managers to focus on running and developing their businesses. Tim is often called upon to act as a part-time finance director for businesses who need the expertise but not the full-time cost of such a team member.
