Ian Tufts

CTO, ParentPay


Throughout my career, I have held three C-suite private equity backed roles. The first was as Group Chief Information Officer to learndirect, the UK’s largest provider of skills, training and employment services, which was backed by LDC.

My second role was as Chief Technological Officer at GL Education, an EdTech business, backed by Levine Leichtman Capital.

I am currently Chief Technology Officer at ParentPay, a provider of online payment, income management and dinner money administration solutions for schools. ParentPay has been backed by Montagu since 2021 and my role will be crucial in scaling the company through technological development.

I support PepTalks members who are: driving digital transformation in their businesses and I look to help technology leaders who are new to private equity to develop the language and mindset required to maximise their impact in the Boardroom.
