“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
Ian has been involved in Financial Services for over 40 years and has travelled extensively during this time, holding numerous positions. He often says he could paper the walls with the many business cards he has had during his career! He has held Director/Senior Management roles with experience in Sales Management/Change Management/Recruitment and Business Development, so there is little that fazes him having experienced most things in this ever-changing industry.
He started with Liverpool Victoria in the old ‘home-service’ era and through promotion relocated to Bridgend, Dennistoun, Paisley, Leatherhead and Renfrewshire. Ian has also worked in the Middle East and Brussels with Towry Law International before returning to the UK, working for large networks such as Sesame, Positive Solutions, 2Plan, Openwork, Intrinsic and latterly Quilter.
Having officially retired from that job in January 2021, Ian was approached by MAP, who asked him to lend his years of experience to the firm and take up the role of Business Development and Recruitment Manager, which he gladly accepted:
“For me this was a bit of a ‘no brainer’ really as I have worked out of MAP’s office for many years and was to a great extent, part of the furniture. I was delighted to accept the offer to help restructure the business and help build the IFA team. Having worked for the largest businesses in our arena, I am now very much a believer that big is no longer beautiful; they just come with more expense, more hurdles and less support than promised.”
MAP offers Independent Financial Advisers and Mortgage/Protection Advisers an environment where they can thrive and grow their business, and most importantly, feel that they are part of a team that listens, supports, and delivers real value for money, both for them and their respective clients.
