About Ian

Ian McKenzie was elected as the Councillor for the ward of Holland Park in 2008 as part of Lord Mayor Campbell Newman's team.

Living in the ward and married to Josie with twins, they are a close family with a vigorous work ethic. Ian's interest in local affairs commenced early, gaining a BA majoring in political science. This led to neighbourhood participation in issues over many years.

He understands the pressures on parents with family and work responsibilities through owning the Morningside childcare centre for 13 years. The business developed his practical leadership, interpersonal and financial management skills, assisted by knowledge gained through a Masters of Business Administration degree.

Ian has a genuine desire to listen, analyse and act on Holland Park issues, big and small. He has held responsible positions in the private and public sectors and holds a Masters of Public Administration degree.

A keen runner, swimmer and bike rider, Ian also enjoys the theatre and music. He encourages residents to contact him and discuss local and city wide issues.
