Ian Branum

Chief Data Scientist (CDS) | Chief Technology Officer (CTO) | AKA Evil Ian

Ian, aka Evil Ian, aka the guy you accidentally send business emails intended for the other Ian.

Ian has done it all. Computer Science at Berkeley. Logistics Officer with the US Navy. An MBA at Cambridge. A Law degree and Data Science bootcamp at University of Melbourne. Japan, Italy, Iceland, UK, Australia, Houston. Back with the Navy, he was a Director of Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration in Germany, the Network Engineering Branch Chief in Iraq, Chief of Staff in the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa in Djibouti, and Deputy CIO for Navy HR in DC. 

Not to brag or anything.

Okay, we’re bragging just a little. Over the last 3 decades, when he wasn’t being the coolest geek in the Navy, he was being a consultant or sitting on bean bags in startups. He has focused on solution architecture and revolutionary applications in healthcare, transportation, and the energy sector. 

After 8 years of slaying it around the globe, Ian’s back at Timbergrove doing cool stuff and getting misdirected emails.
