Tim Bell
Miscellaneous Information:

Tim is a Special Project Manager for Best Start Educare Limited, a social enterprise operating in early childhood education and a registered charity owned by Wright Family Foundation. His background is in accountancy and banking. He is a member of the Institute of Directors.

Tim has come a long way since he first started learning the recorder at age five with stints on mouth organ and ukulele, winning the odd colouring competition and learning piano. His musical background included violin, trumpet and culminated with French Horn for the Waikato Secondary Schools orchestra. His early years gave him an affinity for the performing arts, music and artistic endeavour. Being a Trustee and Treasurer of Creative Bay of Plenty enables him to connect more with his love of the arts and give back to the community by supporting the Board with governance, accounting, banking and legal expertise.

Outside of work Tim enjoys fishing, mountain biking, water skiing, snow skiing and spending time with family. Married with two children, he has lived in the Bay of Plenty for 18 years.
