Non-Executive Director

Ian Coghlan

Ian has been with Tenzing from the start. He sits on the Board and advises the team on our investment processes and portfolio management strategies.

Known fondly as “the travel guy”, Ian has nearly 30 years of experience in the travel and leisure sector. He’s been CEO of cruise lines, tour operators and destination management companies based in the UK and the USA. 

His time as a former PE-backed CEO means he understands what it’s like to be at the pointy end of the stick. He enjoys sharing his learnings from his time in the driving seat through regular mentoring sessions with both the Tenzing team and our portfolio company CEO’s.
