Ian Thomas

Ian was born and bred in South Wales and spent his 35-year career in the healthcare industry in a range of commercial leadership roles with two large US-based medical device companies, ending as UK Managing Director and Head of International with Performance Health, a Chicago based supplier of rehabilitation, exercise and wellness products.

He stepped out of his full-time executive role in October 2018 and is now pursuing a portfolio career, combining both paid and voluntary roles. He joined the Board of Governors of Dauntsey's School, which both of his children attended, in 2018. The opportunity to contribute to the community through his role as a Trustee is his main motivation in joining the Foundation.

Ian and his family have been based in Wiltshire since 1987, although they also spent several years living in Munich, Zurich and Dubai during the intervening years. Ian and his wife Nicky live in Avebury.
