Director
Tim Penketh

Born and raised in Montreal, Tim spent the better part of the last 2 decades living and working around the world: East and Central Asia, the Middle East, North and Sub-Saharan Africa, East and Western Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, and North America – he’s seen a few things. It is during this time on the road that he gained invaluable experience covering countries and industries on all four corners of the globe for highly respected international business titles.

Founding TheFutureEconomy.ca allowed him to leverage this experience to support Canada’s ongoing transition to a more sustainable and prosperous economy. Tim considers driving forward important conversations about the development, innovation, reinvention and the future-readiness of Canada’s economy crucial to ensuring that his kids and all young Canadians will be well-positioned to thrive at home and abroad.

Tim holds a Masters degree in International Relations from London Metropolitan University. He speaks English, French, Spanish, Japanese and Italian. He now lives in his hometown with his family.
