Ian is CEO of Mando, a digital agency that works with large organisations and helps them to simplify the lives of their customers and employees. He is also Chair of BIMA North West and national council member. He co-founded Mando in 1997 and whilst being a digital veteran it hasn’t stopped him achieving repeated inclusion in the BIMA Hot 100s in the last few years, as well as getting ‘Agency Leader of the Year’ at the Drum Networks in 2015 (the same year he launched BIMA in Liverpool) and the 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility Award at the Northwest Institute of Directors.
Passionate about developing the next generation of digital leaders and the efficacy of the work we produce as an industry, Ian is now focused on growing the BIMA community across the Northwest. This year, Mando also branded StodgePodge as we celebrated International Women’s Day as a community.
He splits his time between Liverpool and London, where he is hands-on in growing Mando’s Soho office.
