We did a quick fire Q&A with Ian:

What do you like about your job?

I love the world of finance and the daily challenges it brings. Every day is different. The best thing, though has to be the people I work with. I’ve got great work colleagues who work hard to deliver the best possible service to our customers.

Favourite car?

I once had a black BMW that the kids called the ‘Bat mobile’ – that was a nice car.

Best local restaurant?

Italian Portofino in New Brighton on the Wirral is my favourite place to take my wife. The food at Portofino is always delicious.

Best view?

Sunset down on the promenade in New Brighton is amazing and as one of the locals I do take this for granted. My kids’ faces at Disneyland was a fantastic view!

Ideal day out?

It revolves around food, family and football.

I would start the day with a full English breakfast before heading off to play 18 holes on the golf course. Back home, I’d spend some quality time with my wife and kids with a takeaway pizza and a good film, before finishing off the day watching Liverpool Football Club.

Are you sporty?

I am a keen golfer and love spending time on the course nearly as much as I love spending time with my family. I like watching most sports and have enjoyed playing a few over the years.
