“I am delighted to be appointed as the Executive Officer at SWS. My passion is within the health and wellbeing space where I have dedicated more than 20 years of my career to support people, businesses, and communities to achieve positive health outcomes,” Tims said.

Tims aspires to bring innovation and a professional approach to support SWS people, partners, and the wider South West communities.

“I am really excited to be embarking on leading the team at SWS to provide relevant support to develop and improve the capacity of partners, volunteers and clubs.”
