For more than 25 years, Tim Dodson has structured and negotiated arrangements for the provision (or procurement) and implementation of software, systems or IT-enabled services across the enterprise, guiding clients through a wide variety of transactions including:

  • Outsourcing transactions of all varieties (ITO, BPO, ADM, HRO, F&A, etc.);
  • Cloud services arrangements (Software as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, etc.);
  • Payment card, mobile wallet and other payment arrangements from all sides (issuer, acquirer, merchant, processor) and other FinTech transactions; and
  • Enterprise software implementation projects (ERP, CRM, banking/insurance/wealth management platforms, etc.).

Tim has handled these transactions around the globe across a broad swath of industries, notably banking, insurance, wealth management and other financial services, hospitality, retail, consumer products, airline, software and data analytics. Tim’s deep experience encompasses working both sides of the table, on behalf of or opposite technology providers.
