With over 35 years business development and sales experience, Ian Meyer has worked successfully with a range of multi-national and national Corporate organisations, as well as with and for SME's, across many sectors.

Roles have ranged from senior and strategic positions, to delivering sales at the 'sharp-end' in often very competitive markets. As a rounded commercial business operator, Ian has a keen eye for detail whilst focusing on getting the job done.


His experience has meant that he has considerable hands-on and 'real-world' skills in both developing existing businesses and working closely with early-stage organisations, in order to help them grow faster and more effectively.

A firm advocate of working with clients in order to deliver growth, he has a extensive contacts network and a team of associates and experts to call upon, if required.

Ian is also a registered and approved coach with the UK Government’s flagship business support service – GrowthAccelerator. Heavily funded support that helps businesses grow through working on a 1:1 basis with an experienced, proven and dedicated coach; free workshops focused on all aspects of growing your business; access to match funded training for Leadership and Management development – up to £2k per manager/Director is available.

Ian's ultimate focus is on the execution and delivery of agreed strategies - in other words, getting his hands dirty and making it happen rather than just talking about it!

Keen to maximise his experience and skills, Ian set up Benchmark Business Development Limited in order to help, advise, support and deliver business growth within the SME sector.
