Tristan Drane

Managing Director

About Tristan

​My early career I worked in the ski industry and as a windsurfing instructor which was mainly used to fund national windsurfing competitions I would compete at most weekends. 

At the tender age of 23 and realising that I probably wasn’t going to make it as a professional windsurfer I hung up my shorts, bought a suit and started out in recruitment. It wasn’t a particularly obvious transition, however drive, passion, a willingness to succeed and competitive spirit were all traits that stood me in good stead. 

25 years later and I am now something of a veteran within the industry. I am one of the founders of The ONE Group and hold the position of Managing Director within the business. I am still passionate about what we do and that our ethos and values remain grounded to those which is what formed the business 15 years ago.
