We are delighted to announce that Ian Robinson has recently been appointed as our new UK Operations Director. Ian takes over from Sarah Robinson who has served faithfully over the last 18 months. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Sarah for all the work that she has done for Cairdeas over the time she has been with us.
Ian recently retired from a long career as a chartered electrical engineer. He has worked on project work in the UK and overseas for heavy industries. He has also in recent years run his own consultancy business and brings skills in this area to our operation.
Ian has also been a volunteer for various organisations for many years. For quite a long time he has volunteered as a befriender for Care for the Family’s Bereaved Parents Support network and has also been involved in fund raising for the Brain Tumour charity, Hope for the Future, Parkinsons UK and the Mustard Tree Trust (Northumberland).
Ian is interested in music and plays in Morpeth community Jazz Orchestra. He is also a keen runner and was due to run in the Great North Run this year. Ian is a keen Sunderland supporter.
