Tim Thompson-Rye

Chief Technology Officer

Tim leads a team to strategize, develop, implement and support innovative technology solutions that bring improvements and efficiencies to the business, for the benefit of Progeny clients.

Working closely with all other departments, Tim’s role involves seeking out opportunities for digital transformation and driving the adoption of technology across the business. By listening closely to what clients want from Progeny, he aims to blend tradition and technology to enrich the relationship between clients and their advisers.

After studying a Masters in Electronic Engineering at the University of Bristol, Tim co-founded and ran a financial marketing consultancy, Tenfold, which was acquired by Progeny in 2019, with Tim becoming Marketing Director. He later moved into the Chief Technology Officer role to drive the business towards its goal of becoming the best and most trusted professional advisory firm in the UK and beyond.

Tim lives in South London with his wife, Hannah, and their cat, Charlie. They are big ‘foodies’ and love to try new gastronomic experiences, from the most basic of Asian street food stalls to high-end London restaurants. They also love to travel, both on long trips and short weekends away. As an advanced-level scuba diver, Tim has spent several happy holidays scuba-diving his way around South East Asia.
