After more than 10 years at the helm of Timely, it’s time for me to pass on the leadership baton and take some time out to spend with my family. I am thrilled to share with you that Stuart McLean is stepping in as our new Managing Director to lead our rapidly growing team and community.

Timely has a new Managing Director

Welcome to the Timely family, Stuart!

With incredible experience leading teams in fast-paced, high growth start-ups like Xero and NetSuite, as well as big global organisations including AWS, Google, Oracle, and TradeMe, Stuart has what it takes to lead Timely, and our community into the future.

“Timely has a worthy purpose, an incredible culture, and a passionate team, and I’m looking forward to building on these foundations and continuing to grow this business across the globe.”

But our mate Stuart isn’t all business! Born in Scotland (and partial to a cheeky whiskey, of course), he’s since lived in Australia, Canada, and now New Zealand for over 8 years with his lovely wife Nicola, two kids, and beloved labradors, Rory & Charlie.

See you around the community!

Although I am stepping away from my day-to-day role with Timely, I’ll always remain connected to Timely and our industry through the special relationships we’ve formed over the years with people all over the world.

Timely has come a long way since the first version we released – and since our first brave customers joined us, gave us feedback and encouragement to shape a product that really levelled up the technology. Those early adopters and believers deserve a shout out – Thank You for your support and faith.

Since then, many clever people have worked on Timely, contributing to ideas, development and the creation of an award winning support team and connected community. Thank you all!

We now have a community of more than 50,000 beauty and wellness professionals using Timely every day which makes me incredibly proud. Our purpose and focus hasn’t changed; to grow the value of the global beauty community and increase the wealth of everyone in it. Our team of 130 talented people, led by Stuart leaves you all in very good hands.

So, it’s “see you later” from me for now, and Stuart will officially be joining the Timely community on Monday 4 October 2021!
