Ian founded Vertis Accounting Ltd in 2018 and fulfilled a long-held ambition to work for himself. He’s the ‘face’ of Vertis Accounting and he’ll be your first port of call for any questions you have.
He qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1991 with Coopers & Lybrand. He gained an MBA from the University of Birmingham Business School in 2000 and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
Before founding Vertis, Ian held senior finance roles in several businesses. These included a French-owned UK start-up, a Plc and one of the UK’s largest charities.
Ian has been an active user of cloud accounting software since 2013 and built his knowledge and proficiency in this area through volunteer projects for several charities. Ian continues to volunteer his time and expertise by managing the finances for a local and very active charity.
Originally from the North West of England, Ian has lived in Worcester since 2005 and consequently feels able to call the Faithful City home now. He is married with two adult children and his daughter is actively following in his footsteps because she will qualify as a Chartered Accountant in 2021.
When he’s not working, Ian may well be found cycling around Europe – or indeed anywhere that combines interesting places or scenery with sunshine!
