Ian Alderton
Chief Information Officer at Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)


As Chief Information Officer at the Financial Conduct Authority, Ian leads the Technology portfolio, service delivery and a broad structure of teams for the division and wider organisation. The Technology function provides pivotal service and integral infrastructure across the organisation, that underpins the expanse of work we deliver as a public facing body and digital platform, as well as co-leading the transformation and innovation drive to the FCA becoming a data and intelligence led regulator.

During this time, the Technology organisation has achieved Platinum Partner Status from the British Computer Society, in recognition of our work in promoting Digital & Technology standards and professional pathways.

In his earlier career, Ian was Associate Partner for the CIO Advisory Services business with EY, advising the C-Suite on the most challenging industry issues. Prior to this.
