Ian McMullon

Director, Access Group

Ian McMullon founded PeoplePlanner in 2006 with friend and colleague Clive Ward to provide a software solution to care sector that was like no other.

Ian set about developing that solution, drawing on years of relevant experience in the sector from his time designing and developing software for manned guarding business Rentokil Initial. After more than two years of programming and testing, the solution, called PeoplePlanner, was launched.
Ian has overseen the rapid growth of PeoplePlanner to over 40,000 users, and has achieved sole provider status with three national franchise groups, and one of the UK's Largest Domiciliary Care Providers.

In 2013 Ian oversaw the acquisition of PeoplePlanner by Access Group, where he remains, heading up the development and day-to-day management of PeoplePlanner.
