Timothy Wood

Executive Director

Tim Wood has served as the Executive Director of Denver Gold Group since 2011.

Since taking over, Tim has institutionalized DGG through automation-focused information systems and robust operating processes. The results have been visible in a transformed balance sheet and a material reduction in all business risks.

Underscoring the efficiency is DGG’s ability to maintain unchanged membership pricing for nine consecutive years, even as services and value have increased through three distinct cycles in precious metal prices and through the chaos of COVID. He has also overseen the development of proprietary systems to deliver DGG’s events and meetings without relying on third parties.

Before joining DGG, Tim managed retail and institutional investment conferences in America, Canada, and South Africa. As Managing Director of Mining Indaba, he oversaw its transition from a family operation to a mature business that enjoyed a ten-fold expansion in net income over four years. The private equity owners sold the company shortly after that for nearly seven times the value of the original transaction.

Tim also has extensive knowledge of publishing and information systems development through his experience with various media enterprises, including South Africa’s Sunday Times, Johnnic’s New Media Group, and Moneyweb’s slate of products, which included Mineweb. He has directed and participated in developing and deploying almost two dozen commercial software projects.

Tim was a founding director of Moneyweb, an Internet media group listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in June 1999. He founded ResourceInvestor.com in 2003 and sold it to Miami-based International Investment Conferences in 2004
In 1995, Tim deployed one of the first corporate websites in Africa for the Chamber of Mines of South Africa. That is where he began his career, working as a public policy analyst and assistant to the CEO.

Tim and his family became citizens of the United States after emigrating from South Africa. Tim earned a B.A. Honors degree in International Relations and a Diploma in Business Administration from Wits University in Johannesburg. He read for the degrees after completing compulsory military service as a fire control officer assigned to Tango Battery, Task Force Yankee (10 Art. RHQ) for Operation Prone at the end of the Angolan-South African war 1988.
