Revo Works Team
Director, Chief Engineer
Ian has 15 years experience as a senior manager in the UK’s largest automotive and leisure retailer. His role was developing, engaging and leading large teams of individuals to provide customers with the most outstanding customer service whilst dealing with the pressure of the ever changing retail industry. Ian, who is still an avid cyclist has experienced competition at a high level having won XC championships so understands the pressure that comes with it. He also competed at expert/elite level. That said you’ll often see the team having a dig about the lycra he often wears, especially Andy. He has recently worked with Kyle Wilks, a talented young BSB Stock 1000 rider in a mentoring capacity. Ian has over 20 years experience in vehicle mechanics from 2 stroke motorcycles to 4 stroke, from high powered turbo builds to hi revving race cars and there are the odd M3’s, M5’s and a TRD2000GT in there too. He is known by all around him for his obsessive attention to detail and is well known to expect perfection.
Photography is another passion of Ian’s and he has a website dedicated to it, Chasing Lens.
