Meet Ian, Uber Toronto’s General Manager

The man at the helm

“As somebody who never carries cash, I thought Uber was made for me the first time I used it. It was so satisfying to not have to go through the “my credit card machine just broke” routine. I was an addict from day 1.” – Ian

With an established history at Bain Consulting, Google and his own start up, Ian is the man that is taking Uber to new heights in Toronto! Full of energy and enthusiasm, you will find Ian striking up conversations with riders and drivers all over town.

 

In one word:  Vibrant!

Grew up in: St. John’s (in Newfoundland…NOT New Brunswick)

Current Toronto neighbourhood: College + Ossington

When I’m not working I love to Escape the city to the lakes, woods, mountains!

When I was nine I wanted to be: a professional tennis player (I still want to be one…)

My ultimate vacation getaway would consist of: Remote ski lodge in the Rockies, tons of fresh powder, endless supply of Kokanee and friends + family.

Crab Cakes or Bison Short Ribs? Bison Ribs from the SHAMROCK LODGE!
