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 including, expansion strategy and practice, financial crisis management, Total Rewards, Organizational Design, Workforce Management and many business case developments (some of which required nuance, finesse and sophisticated assumption). In every case, I have benefitted from his counsel.

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.
