Toby Harris qualified from one of the UK's premier universities, UMIST with a MSC in Management Science in 1995. The following year he launched Harrion Ltd, a media company specializing in trade publications. With a unique and creative approach to publishing, the business enjoyed tremendous success and quickly established industry leading trade publications in the UK market.

In 2006 the company was sold to dmg world media, one of the world's largest media companies.

After taking a year out to travel the world with his family, Toby moved back to California and launched the US division of Quartz Events. He is responsible for managing the expansion and development of the full series of Conferences and Summit Quartz Events produce. Over the last 9 years the company has grown from running one event a year to 14 industry leading Conferences and Summits in 2015 in industries ranging from Supply Chain and Logistics, to Oil and Gas, Manufacturing, Food and Beverage, E-Commerce and multiple IT events.
