His passion for Futures, our culture and ethos also convinced us that he was the right person for the job. I’m looking forward to working with Rajan to drive the business forward as we deliver the corporate plan’s aims of creating great places, great services and great tomorrows”: said Ian.

We have a fantastic culture and amazing people at Futures and I enjoy and appreciate working here so much already. We have a strong financial foundation and an equally strong approach to procurement which I will be working hard to ensure we retain while we drive the business forward to achieving our corporate objectives”.
