Tim Harris

“The government leaders I work with are focussed on bringing jobs and prosperity to their citizens by competing effectively on the world stage. Those that build institutions, companies, destinations and talent that win can secure an outsized share of global growth. This makes it an incredibly fulfilling space to work in”.

Tim specialises in helping city, regional and national governments to compete more effectively on the global stage by attracting investment and talent, growing tourism and exports, and connecting to the world’s major markets.

Prior to joining Consulum he was the CEO of Wesgro, the tourism, trade, and investment promotion agency for Cape Town & the Western Cape in South Africa. During the six years that he led the agency it was regarded by the World Bank as the best sub-national agency in Africa.

Before that he served as a Member of Parliament and Shadow Minister of Finance in South Africa.
