Non-Executive Director

Ian Armitage

Ian was previously a Co-Founder, CEO and Chair of Hg and lends us significant real-world experience. He also sits on the Board at Smoothwall.

In addition to Hg Ian worked at 3i and more recently was a board member of the British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA). He spends 50% of his time on pro bono work for the UK schools system.

Ever since meeting the team at Tenzing, I have found their energy and ambition infectious. I share their vision of building the next-generation private equity firm and I like their grounded nature, sense of urgency and fear of complacency.
