Editorial director,

Tim oversees the editorial team that brings you, the UK's biggest motoring editorial website according to independent web traffic auditor ComScore. He's passionate about helping Britain's motorists get into the best cars at the most competitive prices, and has appeared on BBC and ITV news, Radio 4's Today programme and other national radio stations commenting on motoring matters.

He's worked at many of the UK's biggest automotive outlets, including stints as deputy editor of What Car?, running CAR magazine's award-winning website, heading up the news section of Autocar magazine and writing about company cars. Tim's reviewed cars for newspapers, magazines and websites - and spent a couple of years on the staff at Microsoft, sprucing up his digital publishing skills.

'Is there any such thing as a bad car nowadays?,' he asks. 'Real stinkers are few and far between, as quality standards have risen across the board. Yet there’s still a gulf between the merely average and the truly exceptional - and identifying great new vehicles is what drives me and the Parkers team every day.

'There’s no greater thrill in this job than finding a car which rips up the established order of things to set new class standards. And as a father of two, I always have an eye out for cars combining practicality, value and fun.'
