Ian Ridden

Operations Director

I have over 30 years’ experience working in Financial Services and feel as passionate about the advice and service we offer as I did the day I joined the industry.

My role within Blythswood Associates is to support the Directors vision for the business with a robust strategy to be able to offer the levels of quality and service our Clients expect; aligning the Adviser and Support teams to work as one to achieve these goals.


I have been married for 35 years and have two grown up children who have started their own career’s. I enjoy cycling/gym and travelling.


Sector Experience

My broad experience is of working as a Wealth Adviser then moving into Management gaining experience at Area, Regional and National level which has equipped me for my current role as Operations Director.
