Ian moves to Clydesdale Bank from Royal Bank of Scotland.
Ian has developed a particular expertise in the healthcare sector but also has a strong history of supporting businesses in the oil and gas sector. Ian holds the Chartered Banking Certificate of Business Financial Management.
He said: “The economy in Aberdeen and the North East presents many opportunities for ambitious companies with growth aspirations. I look forward to using my knowledge and understanding of the region to support local businesses.”
Stephen Hepburn, head of Clydesdale Bank’s Business and Private Banking Centre in Aberdeen, said: “We are proud to have Ian joining our team and he is now part of a 30 plus strong operation supporting businesses in the city. His in-depth knowledge of Aberdeen’s business community and his awareness of the challenges and opportunities that exist locally will be a great asset.”
