Tim Hart, Senior Vice President – Strategy and Business Development, UBM Americas

“I joined AMR as a Researcher in 2004 shortly after graduating from Cambridge in History and worked my way up through the ranks to become Project Manager. Although I joined AMR in London, I spent most of my time with the company in New York. In fact, I was a founding member of the US office in November 2005.

My time at AMR provided a great foundation for my career and I will always be grateful for that. Analytical rigour, presentation skills, people management, project management and patience are just some of the skills I developed along the way. When I joined, I was seeking a broad-based business training and exposure to a range of industries and AMR did not disappoint. I left AMR at the end of 2012 to pursue an MBA at HEC Paris and to consider a corporate role.

My experience at AMR paid dividends almost immediately as UBM, an AMR client and the largest exhibitions organiser in North America, offered me an internship during my studies. That internship ultimately turned into a full-time role at UBM Tech and later an expanded role as Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development for UBM Americas.”
