Tim Wharton has been fortunate to view Fanshawe College from a variety of perspectives. During his years as a student at Fanshawe, Tim was involved with the Student Union, culminating with being Union President in 1981/82. He graduated in 1981 with diplomas in Purchasing and Business Administration Marketing, and returned to Fanshawe shortly after to teach part time in the Faculty of Business. Tim served on the Business School Advisory Board for six years, chairing during his final year.
Since 2012, Tim has been involved with the Fanshawe Alumni Association, currently serving as Vice President, and he has been a director of the Fanshawe Foundation since 2015. Tim attributes his lifelong involvement with Fanshawe College to the mutual respect that the administration and faculty have with the students.
Tim's professional career has been spent at London Machinery Inc., managing procurement, logistics and aftermarket parts sales.
Tim spends his time away from the office with his wife, Linda, and their two daughters. Together they have travelled to the corners of the globe. Tim is an avid reader and film lover, with an appreciation for the classics.
