Open Fundraising


Tim Longfoot

Managing Director


Tim started his career in student politics, but changed direction swiftly, after publicly humiliating himself at New Labour’s launch party in 1997…

After three years fundraising at YMCA England, Tim became Bluefrog’s first member of staff. Twelve years later, having helped grow the business to 50 staff and over 30 clients, Tim left to set up Open.

In his spare time Tim pines for a simpler life – perhaps smoking fish. Instead he enjoys the hustle of the Holloway Road and the company of his three gorgeous children.
