Tim Farquharson

Senior Vice President

Tim joined Cranemere in 2021 with more than 10 years experience investing in and advising businesses across a variety of industries including technology, healthcare, consumer and industrials. Prior to Cranemere, Tim spent several years at Canadian Pension Plan (“CPP”) Investments, where he worked extensively with Rosario Corcione as a member of the Direct Private Equity team, and, prior to that, at Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (“CD&R”). An engineering graduate from Oxford University, Tim started his career in investment banking team at UBS.

I joined Cranemere because I was impressed by the team I would have the opportunity to be part of and because I believe it offers a highly distinctive and attractive alternative to traditional private equity for management teams and founders. With a long-term mindset, Cranemere can take a differentiated view and allow businesses to take the time to make the right investments for the future while not distracting management with continuous sale processes.

I like working with management teams, founders and entrepreneurs because their passion, energy and ambition to succeed is inspiring. I love to see their ingenuity at play as they build a business and execute their strategic vision. It is one of the best parts of my job to be a part of their journey, supporting and enabling them to realize their ambition and reach their full potential.

I think work/life balance is critically important, particularly as an increase in working from home has blurred the lines between the two. I believe a good balance allows me to be a better investor by becoming a more rounded individual through experiences outside of the office, having time to recharge and spending time with my young family.
