“Ty and I knew eachother from our time at Amey. We then both joined the newly formed Commercial Directorate of the Department of Health in 2003 and worked together as members of the board of the Directorate for almost 3 years. Ty was leading the implementation of a number of major projects across the NHS, managing a large number of staff as well as external consultants. He delivered real value and benefits working in a very complex envirronment at the interface between the public and the private sector. He was respected not only by his colleagues and staff but also by tthe Department's top management and the various private sector companies he dealt with.” May 7, 2009

"I have known Ty Robinson as a client, a colleague and as a friend for 12 years. As a client Ty played a leading role in directing the successful bid and onward design and construction of a £500M office project for the British Government. He moved to become the Commercial Director at the Department of Health, responsible for delivering a nation-wide programme of diagnostic and treatment centres; vital to the Department's provision of acute care based on a significant increase in clinical capacity. As my client on both these major projects Ty demonstated his capable leadership, team approach and ability to deliver. His professional experience in the construction industry and in the pubic / private sectors milieu is highly significant. As a colleague, Ty became Managing Director of the HealthCare division of Navigant Consulting - a large international firm of management consultants. I joined Navigant through Ty's recommendation. At Navigant Ty deployed and co-ordinated the diverse range of healthcare, facilities, programme management and finance skills to deliver healthcare facilities, demonstrating his ability to match resources to needs on a large scale. As a friend Ty demonstrates characteristics of integrity, loyalty and reliability and I am delighted to be able to write this endoresement for Ty .” May 11, 2009

I have known Ty Robinson for over six year. He and his consulting team were hired by GHG when I was MD of Amicus the Public Sector division of GHG. I worked Closely with Ty in preparing and submitting successful bids for healthcare work that was being tendered by the MOH to the private sector. He showed in this process exceptional strategic and tactical skills with an incredible knowledge of how the DOH worked. He had the experience intellect and talent to ensure bids were properly prepared and presented and was a great motivator of his team ensuring that all time scales were properly met.Ty was great fun to work with and we have remained close friends since I left GHG after its sale . I would have no hestitaion in recommending Ty and sincerely hope that I have the opportunity of working with him again.
