IAN BAILEY– Project Officer for Broadband

Ian recently returned to Scotland having spent the past 15 years working in Asia. Prior to settling in Tomphubil, he held several management positions in engineering, sales and operations for high tech companies supporting various electronics industries.  With a degree in Electronic Engineering, Ian has been involved in many new technology projects working with companies including Samsung, Apple, Intel, Ericsson and Carl Zeiss.  His last role was as VP Operations building customer service and administration teams across Asia supporting a new venture in OLED display manufacturing for TV’s and mobile devices.

Having had access to 300Mbps fibre broadband in Singapore, Ian was disappointed to find only 0.5Mbps at his new property so offered his support to HPCP to help build its wireless broadband system across the region. Ian is now focused on developing the subscription software and support infrastructure for the new network.
