Hello I’m Ian, Managing Director of REL Group
I have been working in various Roles at REL for 17 Years, joining from Compaq (HP) in January 1999.
When I started at REL I thought working for a smaller, privately-owned Company, coming from working in two of the biggest computer manufacturers in the world, would be a massive culture change. However, I very quickly realised that REL was a small(ish) Company who think big, and have the same values as the bigger guys – and we continue to think that way.
Last year we celebrated REL’s 20th anniversary in Business which I think is a fantastic milestone – testimony and reward for all of the hard work by our employees past and present.
In my (small amount of) spare time, I like to follow most sports but specifically football and rugby and hope to some day once again see Scotland play in a football World Cup!. What’s left of my time is used up as taxi driver for my children – something I am sure most parents can relate to!
