Prior to this date Ian was Director of Finance for the Rhodes Trust for three years. He trained as an accountant in Oxford and went on to hold a number of key financial appointments in commercial organisations. The last substantive post before moving back to Oxford, was as Director of Finance for the JCDecaux group of advertising companies in the UK. This was a post he held for 12 years. Ian takes responsibility for the College’s finance function and advises the Governing Body on all matters relating to property and investments. Ian also acts as an external member of Oriel College’s Audit Committee where his extensive experience in finance and management is much appreciated.
When not worrying about the College’s finances Ian can be found chasing trout and salmon in the Hebrides or pottering about his wood in Devon.
