Ian is one of the longest-serving members of the OSTC team, having joined in 2005. After 13 years in Warsaw, he is now based in London as Head of Innovation.

Initially hired to establish the Polish division of the business, Ian immediately embraced OSTC’s vision where anyone, anywhere, can learn and trade. He began with just nine traders in Warsaw; today there’s a 180-strong team working in five locations across the country.

Prior to OSTC, Ian ran an IT consultancy in Milan, with clients in Italy, Switzerland and the UK. He also ran a digitisation project for Oxford University and consulted for various start-ups.

When asked what makes OSTC special, Ian’s reply is straightforward:

“The people.”
