Meet the team - Ian Potter

Ian Potter is Gibbons’ Contracts Manager - we grabbed him for a quick chat about food, films, football and more.


What’s been your most embarrassing moment?

I’m another Gibbons employee who has unfortunately managed to badly damage a brand-new company vehicle. Needless to say, Gibbons doesn’t fare well with car insurance in the no-claims discount department.

What stresses you out?

Supermarket shopping! It’s a Saturday morning battlefield.

What excites you?

I love my holidays. You can’t beat uninterrupted warmth and sunshine. We don’t exactly get that at home these days.

What’s your favourite food?

I absolutely love chilli con carne, you can’t beat it.

What type of music do you like?

Late ‘70s and ‘80s rock music, especially bands such as Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy.

What about your favourite band?

Santana, for Carlos Santana’s guitar playing. It’s superb.

And your favourite song?

‘Die Young’ by Black Sabbath

What’s your favourite film?

Zulu or The Green Mile.

And your favourite actor/actress?

Ronnie Barker, he was hilarious. RIP Ronnie.

Which football team do you support?

I’ve followed Leeds United since I was a child. We’ll be back up where we belong in a couple of years.
