Ian has spent 25 years at the intersection of financial services, technology, and media as a founder, operator, and investor. This experience has led him to believe passionately in the ability of today’s fintech companies to empower investors by aligning engaging content with productive tools.

Following two years as CEO of Even, Ian left to become CEO of Stocktwits, Inc., the largest social network for investing and trading with more than six million members. While there, Ian extended the platform by launching Trade App, the first FINRA approved broker-dealer with social features.
