In Episode 24, “Breaking Down Conventional Wisdom”, Blenheim Partners‘ Gregory Robinson is delighted to speak to Tim Sims AM, Managing Director and Founder of Pacific Equity Partners.

In an open and fascinating discussion, Tim shares with us his story. From an early age he has been on the move, living in several poverty stricken nations and being exposed to much more than most and ultimately was determined to one day have the means to help those who are socially disadvantaged.

Tim has had a distinguished business career, commencing in management consultancy with LEK before becoming the Chairman and Managing Director of Bain & Company’s Australasian and African operations and a member of Bain & Company’s Global Executive Committee. Advising many CEO’s, Tim shares with us some unique insights and encourages us to question some long held business principles as he discusses his transition to private equity and reveals the precepts of PE and dispels the myths.

We explore the climate of the market, the significance of the board configuration in determining company performance, the opportunity to release the full potential of organisations from the bonds of the current model and the willingness to break down conventional wisdom to achieve so much more.

Lastly, we cover Tim’s deep passion and obligation to help others through his philanthropic initiatives and how he has applied his expertise from the world of private equity into helping those in need.
