Ian McLean Director

Ian grew up on a sheep and cattle property in south-west Queensland.  After studying accounting he worked for a major accounting firm before joining the primary industries department in the Northern Territory.  While with the department and based in Alice Springs, Ian worked with producers and land managers throughout the NT developing and organising training events and extension activities.
Continuing his involvement with the pastoral industry, Ian then worked for the NT Cattlemen’s Association, initially as project officer and later as Executive Officer.  These roles involved working extensively with members of the association, organising key industry events and representing the industry at a national level.
After leaving the NT, Ian spent 2 years working on the family property in south-west Queensland before he and his wife and children moved to their current location near Toowoomba.  From this base Ian works with and travels to clients across Northern Australia.
Ian’s experience in the pastoral industry, ranging from hands on involvement working on a family property, being involved in training & extension and working with and for members in an agri-political organisation, gives him a very good understanding and perspective of the industry.  
Ian has a passion for the future of agriculture and enjoys helping clients better understand their business in order to be able to make more informed decisions and take their business forward.
