Tim Surgenor

Founding Director, DataMotivate

Tim Surgenor is one of the founding Directors of DataMotivate, a business process outsourcing company that enables the restoration of former slaves and trafficking survivors through technology-based employment and life skills development in the outsourcing sector. 

Tim began working life as a corporate finance lawyer at one of London’s largest M&A law firms. Looking for sunshine and adventure, Tim moved to Australia 8 years ago to take a role as the regional CEO of a large business process outsourcing firm.

Tim’s experience in outsourcing and a friendship with the CEO of the anti-slavery NGO International Justice Mission, inspired Tim together with a number of other outsourcing professionals to establish DataMotivate   - an outsourcing firm specifically designed to provide high quality outsourced business services to large corporates whilst creating sustainable employment for survivors of modern day slavery.

Tim still lives on the beach in Australia but travels extensively through UK and USA promoting the work of DataMotivate to enable then to provide as many trafficking survivors as possible with dignified employment.
