Ian Kirkpatrick

Ian is Commercial Director of The Fountain Workshop. He co-founded the company with his long-standing colleague David Bracey back in 1996. The two share a passion for water and a fascination for how it can completely transform a place. Together they have nurtured and grown the business into the successful and respected company it is today.

Over the years, Ian has delivered hundreds of water features. Bradford City Park stands out as a major achievement – for the transformative effect the project has had on the City of Bradford. His background in fine art means he especially enjoys commissions where he gets the chance to work alongside sculptors and artists.

As well as being the first point of contact for new enquiries and leading new contract negotiations, Ian oversees the company’s administration and financial management. He is particularly proud of the team and of the long-term relationships the company develops with clients and partners.

Ian is huge music fan and attends gigs whenever he can. His grown-up children also keep him busy as well as his interest in literature and writing.
