Principal & CEO


  • Principal & Chief Executive Officer


As Principal and CEO, Ian Fraser has overall responsibility for the ESO’s operational management, strategic planning and decision-making. He also leads the development of new business opportunities, in the UK and overseas, and acts as the main point of communication with the ESO’s Board of Trustees.

“I started my journey at the ESO in 2001 by supporting the Finance department, which led to a career pathway through the majority of the School’s operational departments and grew to include leading the Finance, Estates, IT, Project Management and Executive teams. During this time, I had the pleasure of working with three Principals. This combined experiential activity and service has allowed me to acquire a deep knowledge of the School and an understanding of the osteopathic profession. It has also provided a clear focus for how I would like to lead this institution; to become the strongest osteopathic educator it can be, delivering a high quality educational and clinical experience to our UK, EU and International students, who are the future of the osteopathic profession.”
