Mr Tim Lai Tim is joint Owner and Founder of AQUATECH AUSTRALASIA Pty Ltd.

Tim’s skillsets derive from 20 years of blue chip corporate experience and 5 years in the consulting industry assisting clients to optimise value in their Chinese Foreign partnerships across the lifecycle phases of Joint Ventures (JV).

Today, Tim is now 100% focused on the outright success of AQUATECH AUSTRALASIA Pty Ltd.

As importantly, Tim has the ability to create and sustain long term relationships with Aquatech’s supply chain, bonds which form the bedrock of value and quality assurance for the business in the long term.

While working in China, Tim was involved in some of SHELL’s largest and pioneering market entry partnerships, including experience “from the inside” having been a lead representative posted into one of their most complex and challenging JVs.
