Tim Wilson: CEO, Qutee

My NativeAdVantage:


Tim Wilson currently serves as CEO of Qutee, an advanced data discussion platform. He is also co-founder and CEO of Qutee's parent company, Sentiment360, an engagement and analytics company. He has a degree in law from Leeds Metropolitan University and spent much of his career as a songwriter, music producer and guitarist.

What do I do best?

Motivate. I strive to motivate those around me to achieve their full potential - my team, colleagues, family and friends - to create an environment where everyone can thrive.

What makes me the best version of myself?

Perhaps it hasn’t always been this way, but I’d argue that to succeed in today’s business world, it’s important to be humble. At Qutee, we like to follow the “horizontal hierarchy” model - not the traditional “top down” model.

What are my aspirations?

On a personal level, I strive for full, complete contentment in all aspects of my life (not always easy!).

From a business perspective, I aspire for Qutee to fulfil its potential and help enable digital communities across the world to enjoy more intelligent and insightful conversations.

My Biggest Success?

My biggest success is successfully launching Qutee and continuing to build out our fabulous team.

My Most Challenging Moment?

On a personal level, moving to New York from London was a massive challenge. After living in the U.K. my entire life, it was about making it through and sustaining myself in a long transitional period of adaptation.

On a business level, entering Qutee’s beta period was particularly challenging. It was difficult to identify the right strategy for business during our beta period, but the many hours of brain-power given to the task did ultimately result in an incredibly rewarding experience.

My Motto?

Be kind. Be smart.

My Favorite People/Role Models?

My role model is my grandfather. He was self-educated, leaving formal school at age 14 and eventually fighting in Malta in WWII. After the war he self-taught himself mathematics and engineering, eventually advancing to chief engineer for BA’s passenger jets. He went onto become a chief engineer on passenger jets in WW2, teaching himself mathematics and engineering.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Deia in Mallorca, Spain. It’s a national heritage site that never stops inspiring me.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

My favorite object is my 1969 Stratocaster guitar.

My Current Passions?

Businesswise, my current passions include championing data democracy: empowering communities by giving them free access to data and insight.

Personally, as a guitarist and songwriter, I’m very excited about the new album that I’ve been working on this year. I love sharing my music with others so I’m looking forward to completing and promoting it.
