Our people

Ian Shaw

Partner | Birmingham

I am a Partner specialising in Project Management.

What I do

I am based out of our Birmingham office and support our offices across the business to provide a client-focused, value adding project management service.

I joined Malcolm Hollis in 2017 and have 17 years’ experience of project management from small fit-out works to a £420m hospital and have delivered projects across the UK and South-East Asia.

I specialise in project setup, strategy, business case drafting and procurement. I also have a track-record in recovery of stalled or problem projects and in the delivery of major capital projects, programmes and portfolios.  I am our resident expert in NEC contracts and support Peter Martin in our delivery of services to the public sector, in particular Higher Education, Central Government Agency and Healthcare.

I work alongside Chris McCartney to continuously improve our tools templates and processes and provide a seamless blend from our project services offer of lead consultant, specifier, contract administrator and principal designer into Employer’s Agent and standalone Project Manager.

Who I am

My time outside of work is taken up with playing with my two young sons, who I am trying, but failing, to get interested in racing motorcycles. I occasionally get the opportunity to enjoy cycling (both road and mountain biking), tennis and, rarely nowadays, motorcycle trackdays or green laning. I enjoy travel, watching MotoGP and especially travelling to watch MotoGP overseas and have so far been to Austin, Texas; Sepang, Malaysia; and Catalunya near Barcelona.
