Ian began his career at SunGard Financial Systems, the largest enterprise software and outsourcing services provider to the global financial services industry (now a part of FIS — Fidelity Information Services), where he held the position of Senior Director and led the delivery of complex trading, treasury management, and risk management enterprise software solutions to some of the world’s largest investment banks and sovereign wealth funds. From there, Ian joined Oracle Corporation as a Vice President responsible for delivery of enterprise software, database, and other software technologies to global banks, credit card issuers, central banks, and insurance companies. During his tenure, he led the digital reinvention initiatives required to maximize clients’ returns. After Oracle, Ian joined Triple Five Group where he led the integration efforts associated with two major, multi-industry acquisitions.

Examples of his work include:

  • Developing and implementing a portfolio rationalization program for a $50 billion global conglomerate that led to divestiture of several low-potential, non-performing businesses, made two strategic acquisitions valued over $7 billion, created a state-of-the-art shared services organization that reduced $375 million in annual costs across all businesses, and increased return on operating income from 12 to 27 percent over a 2-year period across all businesses.

  • Developing and implementing an industry-leading omnichannel strategy for a venerable U.S. luxury retailer, which necessitated transforming the company’s IT systems and organization, and resulted in 4.5% in increased sales and $170 million in annual cost savings within 14 months.

  • Developing and implementing a technology systems portfolio rationalization for one of the largest global investment banks, delivering over $350 million in performance improvements within 18 months.
