Our Story!

Ian-Pic-Headshot (299 x 299)Ian Cleary is the founder of RazorSocial.  He worked in technology companies for many years in start up environments and started up other businesses in other areas to feed his appetite for entrepreneurship.

Back in 2005 Ian’s last technology company was acquired by a big corporate so it was time for Ian to move on.   At this stage Ian decided to go to a different direction.

He started building a business around social media consulting and training and built a profitable business with his partner Colette.

But he wanted to build a global business. With a strong knowledge of social media and technology and a massive gap in the market he launched RazorSocial with Colette.

RazorSocial has grown dramatically and we have built up a very strong reputation globally.


ColetteIan’s business partner Colette grew and developed our training and consulting business while Ian built up RazorSocial.  As RazorSocial has grown so quickly and has so much promise Colette is now starting to work on RazorSocial.

We have built up a core team of professionals which are doing an amazing job.



Our business is growing rapidly.  We are being invited to speak at the largest social media events in the world.  We are working with brands, agencies and influencers and are becoming recognized globally for what we do.

Wow, it’s a fun journey.  Join us!
