His focus is supporting UK mid market and owner manager businesses either sourcing investment and acquisitions or enabling exit strategies and maximising value across a range of industry sectors.
Ian also works extensively with private equity houses and has lead several of the region's most prestigious transactions, winning Thames Valley Deal of the Year in both 2007 and 2011 and being nominated every year since the awards began.

In the last 12 months Ian has advised on the MBO of Intuitive, HMT’s first £100m+ deal being the sale of Swift Worldwide Resources to a US private equity house and the refinancing of Southern Communications, as well as winning the 2013 Blake Lapthorn Poker Tournament!
Ian is married to Angie and lives near Ascot with his 2 young daughters.
Ian is a keen sports fan - more watching than participating - and has rekindled his enthusiasm for football in recent years being a lifelong Manchester City fan.
