He will be responsible for heading up its bank outsourcing and managed services business. NoteMachine recently acquired more than 1,000 remote cash machines from a leading high street bank to propel it to the top spot as the largest provider of cash machines in the UK.
Ian brings a wealth of experience to NoteMachine with over 10 years' operational and strategic experience within the cash machine industry. As Head of ATM Business at Santander he was responsible for all non-branch ATMs and previously he worked as Operations Manager for the entire Alliance & Leicester cash machine network.

High Street Banks remain a key target area for us; Ian's extensive experience and wealth of contacts, combined with an excellent value proposition, will help us make considerable inroads into this market."
In 2001 Ian managed the operation of Alliance & Leicester's ATM network through a period of rapid expansion from under 1,000 machines to a peak of 2,500 machines.
He was also responsible for consistently maintaining Alliance & Leicester cash machine availability at one of the highest levels of any bank or building society in the UK and subsequently led a strategic review of the Santander remote ATM estate.
