Ian is a man who has got where he is because of his unique capacity to stay calm under pressure. Ian has the ability to remain relentlessly positive even when all evidence points in the opposite direction. Before joining the Olympic Deliverance Commission as Head of Deliverance, he had spells with British Nuclear Fuels then progressed through the National Disasters Executive to his most recent job as Director of the Urban Regeneration Agency, in which role he was almost solely responsible for Manchester. Ian is unhappily married, but nowhere near as unhappily married as he will be by the end of his Olympic journey.
