Chris Timmins

Chris has worked as a buyer and provider of market research services across both the public and private sector over the last 25 years.

His career began at Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS), spending seven years in the Consumer and Media divisions. Clientside experience includes European Brand Research Manager at Mars Confectionery and immediately prior to joining Beaufort in 2003, Head of Research & Evaluation at the Sport Wales.

Chris leads the quantitative team at Beaufort taking overall responsibility for the design and reporting of ad hoc and continuous research. His work includes many national studies which have examined societal and legislative change over the past two decades including the smoking ban, single-use plastic bags and organ donation legislation.

Outside of work, Chris has a passion for almost any sport and is a keen runner. He recently fulfilled a lifelong ambition of completing a marathon (never again!) but now prefers the regular, much shorter, Saturday morning parkrun.
