After a police career predominantly spent in the Criminal Investigation Department, with additional service in the Serious Crime Squad and an award for “Most Meritorious Student in Scotland in Forensic Science”, Ian Kerr founded ID Inquiries in 1990 and ID Cyber Solutions in 2015. Focusing on the needs of the customer is at the core of Ian’s business philosophy. He achieves this by employing top-quality staff to guarantee the integrity of his business and matches this by using robust process-driven systems. One of his fundamental beliefs is that ‘you should only recruit people better than you and the best the company can afford,’ with the next being ‘Consumer is Boss’!

Ian is a serial networker, achieving this through being a Board Member and former Director of the Entrepreneurial Exchange, and is known for his ability to ‘put people together.’ He believes firmly in giving back to the community, providing mentoring through the Exchange. He is also a former Chairman of the Scottish Campaign at The Princess Royal Trust for Carers.

Ian’s interests include golf, photography, and reading.
