Tim Moxey was living in the UK when he read an article in ‘The Economist’ about Washington State's move to legalize cannabis. He became convinced that the socioeconomic benefits from a legal framework far outweighed the prohibition model and he promptly relocated to the U.S. to take part in the seachange. In 2014, he and a fellow classmate from Tuck founded botanicaGLOBAL, a brand driven cannabis products company that would challenge perceptions of how cannabis and hemp could help consumers live a healthier, happier, and better life.
Prior to botanica Tim founded nuun, a pioneering hydration company which spawned a new category in sports nutrition, and built the specialist triathlon wetsuit company blueseventy. He began his career at the investment bank, Barclays Capital, before moving to strategic management consulting firm, Bain & Co. He holds an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business.
