Property Management Team

Timothy Oakley
Director of Refurbishment and Development

Tim is responsible for supervising the redevelopment and refurbishment of the Group's assets.

Tim has over forty years' experience in the construction and property business in Central London. He has owned and managed an independent development and consultancy business for the last twenty years, advising clients on the sale and purchase and development of residential and commercial property.

He has been a trustee of LAMDA for the last six years, where he chairs its building committee, negotiated the sale of its original theatre and oversaw the planning application for LAMDA's new 60,000 sq. ft. theatre building. He is now overseeing its design and build contract, which completes in mid-2016.

Tim was part of the team that started and built up Gander, acting as a director of its main subsidiary company. Using his own construction company, Tim was responsible for supervising the planning and development of acquired buildings. After leaving Gander, Tim was involved in a £23 million redevelopment of a retirement home in Queen's Gate Terrace into 23 flats.

In the early 1970s, Tim founded his own property and construction companies, initially carrying out tightly budgeted projects for the government-sponsored Housing Corporation, later expanding into high-end luxury residential developments in Central London. He also worked as a designer for Sir Terence Conran's Interior Design Group.
