Tim Creswick MITP Board of Directors / ITP Chair and CEO of Vorboss
Timothy Creswick is the founder and CEO of Vorboss Limited, the only dedicated fibre network and internet service purpose-built for the needs of London’s most demanding businesses.
He realised his entrepreneurial spirit when he started mowing neighbours’ lawns in his school days to earn pocket money. He soon became interested in software when he designed a billing system which he used to invoice his customers. Following this he taught himself to code and started building websites, which helped pay his bills in university.
Vorboss started as a software consultancy 17 years ago but Tim pivoted the business when he spotted a gap in the market for top quality connectivity for businesses. Vorboss has grown 440% over the last 18 months, with over 300 people hired in just two years.
Vorboss has installed over 500 km of fibre optic cables in London since 2020. The business is taking on legacy networks by investing over £250 million to build the city’s only full-coverage fibre network dedicated to business, with a commitment to cover all commercial buildings in Central London.
Vorboss delivers 10Gbps as the new minimum standard, which is where most providers top out, with services at 100Gbps already live with customers, including 22 Bishopsgate – the UK’s largest office building. Vorboss owns its network end to end and operates entirely in-house, removing the need for brokers, wholesalers and resellers who use confusing pricing structures. Vorboss work directly with customers to offer a simple, transparent and competitively priced product.
Tim has built the company by putting its people first and is committed to gender equality across his team. Vorboss applies refreshed thinking to how it hires and built the Vorboss academy, an accredited in-house programme designed to provide skills to kickstart a career in telecommunications – an industry first.
