Tim Levett

Non-Executive Chairman

Having been involved in starting NVM up back in the 1980s, along with Alastair Conn and Michael Denny, I have played a key role in the evolution of the firm including helping to raise an institutional buy-out fund in 2018 and growing a successful Venture Capital Trust (VCT) business and subsequently selling it to Mercia Asset Management in 2019.

In my role as Non-Executive Chairman I help set the strategic direction of the firm, sit on the investment committee and play an active role in reviewing both new investments and the existing portfolio. In addition, I still maintain some involvement with the divested VCT business and am the Non-Executive Director of Northern Venture Trust PLC and Northern 3 VCT PLC.

Prior to founding NVM, in my very early career, I was an officer in the Royal Navy. When not at NVM I can be found on the Isle of Wight sailing with friends and racing competitively.
