About Ian

I joined JCRA in 1999 and developed our UK benchmarking business in project finance. This developed over the years and we now provide a far more strategic advisory role to clients over the wider project finance sector, focusing mainly on infrastructure. This business has grown significantly and we now advise clients in the UK, Ireland, Continental Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

I joined the Group Board in 2010 and was part of the management team that completed the VMBO in 2012 and the subsequent MBO in 2017.

Before joining JCRA, I was Head of Treasury at Daiwa Bank (Capital Management) for 10 years, where I was in charge of interest rate and foreign exchange risk management of the bank’s capital. Before that, I worked for ANZ Bank in London and Melbourne for seven years in Treasury and financial engineering, after starting my career at Grindlays Bank. 

In my spare time, I am an avid rugby fan. I also enjoy skiing, walking and travelling, and am a keen motorcyclist and general petrol head.
