Ian Cole-Wilkins

Group CEO

Ian has been the Indigo Group CEO for just over four years and is based in the Penarth office. He is responsible for delivering the five-year plan and for market growth. Ian began his career at HMRC but quickly realised he was more suited to life on the other side of the fence. He progressed his career with a large independent tax led accountancy firm, then left this job to pursue non-executive roles, form the FRS business, and take equity stakes in other businesses. Indigo purchased FRS two years after its formation to form the Indigo Group. Ian loves the pace and the work ethic at Indigo. Outside of work, Ian has a young family, so spends lots of his down-time at children’s attractions and parks. Ian enjoys cooking, especially outside in his wood oven, watching rugby, enjoying a pint, the odd bet, and going on boys’ trips.
