About Ian

I have extensive experience of operating at c-suite level within the FTSE100 and in a non-executive capacity on several private and not-for-profit boards. My key experience is in the areas of strategic planning, transformational change and corporate governance. In recent times, I led an award-winning transformation programme - one of the largest and most complex investments of its kind in UK industry, impacting on over 140,000 people across Royal Mail.

I also operated as Chief of Staff between 2014 and 2018 - acting as confidante, critical-friend and trusted advisor to Royal Mail’s UK CEO.

In Jan'20, I made the bold move of establishing my own company - Devereaux Kelly Associates, providing advisory and support services to organisations serious about transformation.

Ian also acts in an advisory capacity to Career Ready, CASS Business School and The Romero Academy in Coventry. Until recently, Ian was the non-executive chairman of National Design Consultancy 2000 Ltd.
  

Current Role Details

After a successful career operating at c-suite level within the FTSE100, I decided to set up my own company – Devereaux Kelly Associates, established in January 2020.

As Managing Director, I have created a team of like-minded project professionals, passionate about helping organisations deliver successful major change and business transformation. This step into the business advisory and support world, draws on my significant experience in the areas of strategic planning, transformational change and corporate governance.

At DKA we have created a team, with over 100 years of combined multi-sector experience, providing a unique differentiator of having 'walked in the shoes' of our clients.
