Prior to his consulting career, Ian worked for the global engineering group Invensys PLC facilitating major initiatives. One such initiative, building a new 180,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Mexico, brought Ian to the United States, where he still lives with his wife, Veronica, and sons, Christian and Sean. Ian also led Invensys's highly successful Lean Design for Six Sigma deployment. Some 380+ Design Belts within a single division yielded a 65 times return in less than two years. Ian holds a Ph.D. and a First-Class Honors degree in applied mathematics from Scotland's St. Andrew's University. In addition to his consulting work, Ian serves on the faculty of the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University.
