The Team

Meet the people behind
Tim Connolly

Tim founded his first executive search firm, ALC Enable, in 2001 and in 2022 founded C-Enable for the Crypto and Digital Asset industry, followed by Benchmark your Job in 2023.

With a background in film, theatre and publishing, he established the ‘Creative and Media’ practice for a London executive search firm in the late 1990s.

With 22 years of working with top end headhunting firms around the world, Tim saw an opportunity gap for a top end executive search and talent consultancy business focused at Board and C-level within the crypto space. This resulted in C-Enable, the first search firm to do this in a dedicated way and Benchmark your Job was a natural spin-off.

Tim also coaches and mentors industry leaders, enabling them to hone their skills and experience, develop and prioritise their plans for their business and achieve their goals.

He is fanatical about 1980s and 2020s music, a passionate skier, an okay chess player, a below-average children’s magician, and the least prolific stand-up comedian on the London circuit, averaging one gig every 4 years to date. He still would like to try his hand at comedy, it’s just a question of whether his arm and the rest of his body will follow.
