About this Event
Join myGwork every Tuesday for our Student Bites, a weekly round-up of the news from myGwork followed by an interview with an industry guest speaker! This week, special guest, Tim Vallin, Managing Director, Private Markets from IHS Markit will be in the seat of our Q&A where you can take the opportunity to ask questions about their journey as an LGBT+ professional, career advice for graduates and other important topics.
Tim joined IHS Markit in 2008 as a software engineer and is currently CTO for the Private Capital Markets group in the Financial Services division. Prior to IHS Markit, Tim worked as a technology consultant in the banking industry in France and the UK.
Tim has been involved in the [email protected] Markit network for the past three years and is now chair of the UK network. Tim says: “having spent the early years of my career in the closet, I’m acutely aware of the impact it can have on one’s mental health and productivity”. He wants to help create an environment where no one feels the need to hide part of who they are.
Tim holds a degree from the Institut Superieur d’Electronique de Paris.
