SDA welcomes Ian who has joined our team as Business Development Manager.
Ian started in business development in the construction industry straight from school, and has worked in structural steelwork and, more recently, building services contractors. His career landmarks include orders for the QE2 Bridge and Canary Wharf, as well as numerous hospitals, universities and schools. He has worked for major companies including the then Glynwed group and Balfour Beatty.
For eight years he ran his own training company specialising in sales, management and presentation skills. Regular clients included JCB, IBM, RHM and Caradon Group.
Recently he’s been working in property and reorganisation for the Church of England, and on placing apprentices in companies in conjunction with the LEP and CITB.
Outside work Ian is active in the church, where he is an ordained minister, and plays and sings in a successful folk band.
