(Before you ask, it was a NatWest Achievers Awards ceremony over a couple of days one freezing January back in the 90's. Tim was in his role as Retail Chief Exec whilst I was heading up a successful Relationship Banking team. He threw off his CEO mantle for the 'fun' day and toured the park with my crew). Got to know something of the man behind the name, and have to say I have a lot of time and respect for him. He'll do a good job.
