Director EVERYWHERE Humanitarian Response and Logistics Services
Ian has been involved in delivering international humanitarian assistance for over 15 major disasters since the mid 1990’s, working as a logistician and response manager, largely with the International Red Cross (IFRC) and the United Nations. This has been interspersed with a career in commercial logistics.
Outside of disaster operations, some notable achievements include managing a team to re-engineer the IFRC’s global supply chain, leading to the organisation winning the European Supply Chain Award for Excellence, and the award of best thesis when gaining his MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Cranfield University.
Ian has recently returned from working in Haiti where he was Logistics Coordinator for the IFRC, and is involved in setting up his new company, Everywhere Disaster Relief. He is also undertaking a PhD focusing improving the way actors providing logistics services work together in disaster response.
