Ian Buss

Ian has a 35 year banking career behind him with the last 20 years dedicated to the Education and Not for Profit sectors.

Ian has held voluntary posts as both a School Governor and a Trustee at an Education Governance charity.


He built the Education team and proposition for Schools at a major bank and lead the team to grow market share from 12% of Academies to over 70% and increased lending to support Independent schools by double digit growth year on year.

Ian's in-depth knowledge of the Academy and Independent school sectors is unparalleled.

As such, Ian has a unique insight into Academies, Independent Schools and the Not for Profit sectors. He brings this expertise to the Education Banking Consultancy to have a client centric focus to significantly improve financial efficiencies, returns and risk management in your organisation.

In my 35 year banking and support career,  I have yet to see a school or charity that wouldn't benefit from external support for deposit solutions and funding options.

The reality is, in most MATs, Independent Schools and Charities, there is not the time to see the wood for the trees.

This is where I can support you.

I offer a completely free initial consultation by phone or video call to get an understanding of your needs and to share potential solutions with you. Support for Treasury management guidance and deposit solutions are always free for schools.
