I worked with John when I was at IKEA. He is smart, creative, a critical thinker and will challenge the status quo. He has high energy and always delivered what he promised.
CFO - IKEA North America Services
John is an excellent management professional with superb intellect and communication skills. I was able to work with John during my time at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the change he brought was a breath of fresh air. His competent and collegial style allowed me to feel confident to take risks and try new challenges. Without his support, I am not sure I would have been able to grow and advance as I did. John worked very hard to improve our work culture into to one of mutual respect and open and clear communication. As such, these are hallmarks I look for in other companies I work for or with. John is a reliable and trustworthy individual and I highly recommend his work.
Campaign Manager - Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
I had a great pleasure working with John in the USA. John has proven to be a great leader and colleague. I am very impressed with his knowledge in supply chain, retail and business steering. John is always open to change and trying to improve the performance in organization, involving people and maximizing the potential of his team.

I have had the privilege of knowing Ian for many years as a colleague, mentor and confidant. From my experience, he is a skilled advisor and coach, who can be counted on to provide a fresh and thought provoking view of any topic being discussed. Ian is skilled at foreseeing the real-world implications that accompany new ideas, and understands how well planned operations have a great impact to financial health. His wealth of practical retail experience and know-how enables him to provide astute guidance at every level of an organization. Ian is trustworthy, and always follows through on his commitments.
Global Payments Manager - IKEA
I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with/for Ian for over twelve years. Ian’s ability to have a common sense, simplistic approach allow for people to easily learn and identify with Ian. Ian is a person of key leadership traits and has had the admiration and respect of all those that have worked with and for Ian over the years. The competence I have gained from Ian’s leadership and expertise in Business Planning & Development, Sales and Financial Forecasting/Management have allowed for me to develop and anchor myself into an integral part of my organizations financial management team. The trust and respect I have for Ian is second to none and with the success Ian has endured himself and taught onto others over the years is why Ian will always be my go-to person on any consultation.
Regional Finance Manager - IKEA
I have worked closely with, and respected Ian Ridgway for the better part of two decades. I know him to be a person of unquestioned integrity, sound judgment and comprehensive business acumen. I have personally worked closely with him on matters great and small ranging from, expansion strategy and practice, financial crisis management, Total Rewards, Organizational Design, Workforce Management and many Business Case developments (some of which required nuance and finesse and sophisticated assumption sets). In every case, I have benefitted from his counsel.
