As a leading figure in the IT Transformation practice worldwide, Ian’s narrative is one of innovation, leadership, and impact, making him a key player in the Digital Transformation, Enterprise Applications, and AI practice groups.

Ian’s career took flight at SunGard Financial Systems, a global leader in enterprise software and outsourcing services. As a Senior Director, he faced the challenge of delivering complex trading, treasury management, and risk management solutions to premier investment banks and sovereign wealth funds worldwide.

At Oracle, he was instrumental in delivering enterprise software and cutting-edge technologies to global financial institutions. His leadership in digital reinvention initiatives amplified clients’ returns, marking a significant milestone in his career.

After Oracle, Ian joined the Triple Five Group, where he orchestrated the integration of two major, multi-industry acquisitions. Today, at P&C Global, Ian’s story continues as he collaborates with clients across various industries, crafting and executing award-winning strategies in M&A integration, digital transformation, IT transformation, performance improvement, and organizational agility.

Ian’s approach to leadership is rooted in partnership. He works closely with client CEOs and other C-suite executives to develop and implement effective and impactful market-leading solutions. His impressive results speak for themselves, with recent examples including:

  • Digital Transformation for a Global Retail Giant: Ian led a comprehensive digital transformation initiative for a global retail giant, which was struggling with outdated IT systems and processes. The project involved a complete overhaul of the client’s IT infrastructure, implementation of advanced data analytics, and training of staff. The result was a 20% increase in operational efficiency, translating to annual savings of $200 million.
  • M&A Integration for a European Telecom Company: Ian spearheaded the integration of a €5 billion acquisition for a leading European telecom company. His strategic oversight ensured a smooth transition, with minimal disruption to ongoing operations. Post-integration, the client reported a 15% increase in market share and annual cost synergies of €50 million.
  • Performance Improvement for a Global Commercial Real Estate Firm (AED): Ian led a performance improvement initiative for a global commercial real estate firm. The project involved optimizing property management processes, implementing advanced data analytics for market research, and enhancing tenant engagement strategies. As a result, the firm saw a 15% increase in rental income and a 10% reduction in operational costs, leading to an increase in annual profits by AED 500 million.
  • IT Transformation for a Saudi Arabian Bank: Ian guided a Saudi Arabian bank through a critical IT transformation project, which involved migrating to a cloud-based infrastructure and implementing robust cybersecurity measures. The transformation resulted in a 30% reduction in IT costs, equivalent to annual savings of SAR 150 million, and significantly improved the bank’s resilience to cyber threats.

Ian’s educational journey is as diverse as his professional one. He holds a BA in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania, an MBA in International Business from Villanova University, and an Executive Certificate in ‘Leading Digital Transformation and Innovation’ from INSEAD. He’s also a proud graduate of the Advanced Management Program from Harvard Business School.
