Tim Grant was born in England but has spent most of his life in Tasmania. He completed his secondary education in Devonport prior to undertaking his tertiary Valuation studies at RMIT. In 1980 he joined the Lands Department as an Assistant Valuer following a short period with a private valuation firm. Following qualifying as a Valuer, in 1995 he was advanced to Senior Valuer, responsible for the North West Coast of Tasmania. Following the introduction of competitive tendering for Statutory Valuations Tim was appointed State Manager, Government Valuation Services, in 2000. He was responsibility for the preparation of tenders for statutory valuations, staff and financial management of the business unit.
In November 2014 he was appointed Acting Valuer-General for Tasmania with responsibility for the provision of the Tasmanian Government statutory valuation program. He was appointed to the permanent position in November 2015. The major project involving a substantial amount of Tim’s time since then has been the replacement of the aging Valuation Information System (VISTAS).
Tim is an Associate of the Australian Property Institute, has been a member of the Tasmanian Divisional Council including a term as Divisional President, and was a member of the API National Education Board. He is still actively involved in Professional Interviews for Tasmania Graduate Valuers seeking advancement.
Outside of work Tim enjoys spending time with his family, sailing, bushwalking and snow skiing.
