Ian is one of the founder members of Quorum, having formed the company in September 2000. Previously Ian had a military career within the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers attaining the rank of Warrant Officer Class 1 (WO1) Artificer Vehicles.
After leaving the Army Ian worked for a technical consultancy prior to joining GKN Defence in Telford, Shropshire. GKN Defence was then acquired by Alvis and became Alvis Vehicles. It was during this period that Ian decided to form Quorum.
Ian’s role in the company has been hands on with several main projects in Reliability and Maintainability roles and also dealing with the Commercial and Finance elements of the company. He has worked on many UK and multi-national projects and most recently the Logistic and Support Lead on a UK main armoured vehicle project.
Having recently sold an equestrian centre and B&B, taking up most of any spare time available, Ian is now concentrating on the total refurbishment of a newly acquired property with his partner. He is keen to include a music room for his guitar and saxophone playing as well as rekindling his passion for photography. The project is well underway but seems a never-ending task. He is also keen to return to boating in the future, especially when thoughts of retiring briefly occur.
