Ian Burnell FCCA (Treasurer)

 Hi, I am Ian, with a degree in economics from Hull University, and a qualified accountant.

I have recently retired from a career in Finance and General Management, predominantly in manufacturing industries serving automotive, aerospace and engineering markets.

With a little more time on my hands now, I joined the Board of Sheffield Mind, in order to give something back to the local community.

Having recently come on board, I hope to be able to use my experience to help the staff and trustees gain a wider knowledge of financial and commercial issues facing the organisation.

Although proud to be born in Yorkshire, I have spent a number of years doing ‘missionary work’ across the Pennines, hence my support for Manchester United. I also play league table tennis in Sheffield, where I am Treasurer, and Rotherham. With some time available now, I aim to resurrect my opportunity to play golf which has diminished in recent years.

I also enjoy Rock and Blues music along with history and cooking.
