Ian Whitworth


Ian Whitworth is a graphic designer and programmer. He became involved with corporate reporting by writing a program enabling very large annual reports to be easily transformed from Word/Excel to InDesign. The experience enabled him to develop a multi-channel publishing platform with an edit once and multiple output functionality. Ian jointly founded PortAlchemy and using its enormous collection of annual reports created an XBRL auto tagging algorithm. This has been built into an XHTML workflow for annual report creation that can replace or work with InDesign with regulatory change in Europe 2020 in mind.
