The Management Team

In 1985 he founded iconic games company Psygnosis which in 1991 published Lemmings. 2 years later, having sold to Sony, Ian was appointed managing director of SCEE, the ‘Playstation Company. This period saw him commissioning the production of numerous independent software products, helping to establish some of the world’s most valuable development companies all of whom were eventually acquired by world-leading names in the entertainment field.
