Tributes have been paid to Tim Carter, the former Chair of Association for Project Management (APM), who has passed away. 

Tim (pictured) was a well-known, successful project manager whose career highlights included being a partner at construction consultancy Davis Langdon LLP and playing pivotal roles in high profile projects such as the world-famous Eden Project. He became an Honorary Fellow of APM in 2009.

He had a long history with APM, accomplishing much during his time with the organisation. In 1987 he was the driving force of the expansion of APM meetings throughout the UK. He saw the need for the branch structure and, based on his previous experience as the Yorkshire branch secretary of another institution, took the reins of the project to set up APM’s first regional branch in the North West. Tim also worked with Richard Pharro and Martin Barnes to create the first APM Body of Knowledge.

Tim was Chair of APM between 1991-1993 and ran the APM Awards until 2002. He received the prestigious Sir Monty Finniston Award (now known as the APM Outstanding Achievement Award) in 2007.

After retiring, Tim moved to North Wales and became a reader at Christ Church in Prestatyn. He passed away on Saturday 27 April 2024, after a short and sudden illness.

Professor Adam Boddison OBE, APM’s Chief Executive, commented: “Tim was not only an outstanding project professional, but a valued ambassador for our profession and for APM. Although I did not have the privilege of working with him personally, his contribution to APM is still being felt to this day. Thanks to Tim’s work, and that of other trailblazers, APM has a bright future.”
