Ian is currently chair of the Strateigc Board having joined in 2013, he then became Vice-Chair in 2016. Ian explains more about himself here;
“I am a Chartered Surveyor, semi-retired after 40 years in the commercial property industry. My career included roles as Property Investment Director of Norwich Union (now Aviva), and Development and Investment Director of Chartwell Land plc (the property company arm of Kingfisher plc – now best known as the company behind B&Q and Screwfix)
When I retired I wanted to maintain some interests in the property industry. I enjoy working with the team at Havebury and I believe that my experience in development, financing, and property management helps me contribute to Havebury’s Board. I would add that I was born into a council house in mid Wales, and I think it is important to maintain a strong and healthy social and affordable housing sector.
I am married with 3 grown up children who are all great! My interests include golf, travel, and DIY – particularly carpentry.”
