Ian brings a unique perspective to PFS Consulting. In addition to his extensive executive and board experience, he has also been a very senior regulator. Ian will provide PFS Consulting clients with an unmatched level of expertise and insights, helping them deal with the requirements of a post-royal commission world and measurably improve their own performance.”
