BKR International appoints new Worldwide Chief Executive Officer

The BKR International Worldwide Board is proud to announce the appointment of BKR’s new Worldwide CEO, Tim Morris (London), effective from January 1, 2021.

Tim will assume his responsibilities from Howard Rosen, who will be retiring at the end of 2020. Tim’s appointment comes as part of a planned leadership transition that the BKR International Worldwide Board has been working on for several years.

Tim is the current Executive Director of BKR’s EMEA region. Prior to that, Tim was director of consultancy firm, NJHM Associates Limited. Tim has a varied background in the international, diplomatic and private sectors, which has taken him around the world from New Zealand to Canada, Hong Kong to Malawi. He has lived and worked in Europe, Kuwait, Qatar and Bangladesh.

Manuel Rangel, the Worldwide Chair of BKR International, comments “Tim brings a broad range of critical skills and attributes to this position. He has served as the EMEA Regional Executive Director for more than five years. He also acted as a mentor to the Asia-Pacific Region’s new Executive Director as he transitioned into his role and has been an active participant in the CEO and Regional Executive Directors’ annual meetings. He has a deep understanding of our industry, our member firms, and the challenges we face”.

Tim Morris comments, “It’s a challenging time for organisations everywhere and we will certainly see some changes in the way that business is carried out. I’m particularly excited to be in this new role at this time and develop our Association for the benefit of members in what will become the new normal”.
