Experienced lawyer and business leader Ian Hopkins was appointed as chief executive of B P Collins in August 2015. With an excellent track record of leadership and management skills, Ian works hand-in-hand with the firm’s solicitors and alongside the head of business development and marketing, Gina Connell, to help drive the business forward and achieve success.
Having qualified as a solicitor in 1987, Ian spent his early career with a law firm in Wales. During his five years as chief executive of Debenhams Ottaway in St Albans, Ian led the practice to the 2014 title of Medium to Large Business of the Year at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards; that same year Ian also was named a finalist in the St Albans Chamber of Commerce Business Leader of the Year.
Ian has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and, in 2014, gained a Level 7 qualification in Law Firm Risk and Compliance from the Institute of Leadership and Management. A keen networker, he is also a member of the National Executive Committee of the Law Society Law Management Section.
Away from the office, Ian enjoys golf – achieving a hole in one in 2011, after 40 years of trying – together with foreign travel.
