Founder & CEO
Ian Uriarte is our Founder & CEO at Timbergrove. Ian is an electrical and software engineer turned serial entrepreneur with decades of experience successfully leading businesses and non-profit organizations. His expertise ranges from oil & gas to manufacturing to transportation and just about everything in between.
Ian spent the first decade of his career working for companies like Baker Hughes, NOV, SunGard, and IBM. During his years at IBM, he consulted for companies like Shell, Nissan, and Michelin. There, he became an expert in large technology projects and saw great opportunities to bring transformation through technology to an even wider range of businesses.
In order to move more agilely and pursue his crazy tech ideas, Ian founded Timbergrove in 2009. Since then, he's led Timbergrove to grow into the field of industrial IoT, enterprise asset management, and custom product development, but managing to remain boutique enough to take care of each client the way they deserve.
Despite the demands of his business, Ian manages not to take himself too seriously. You can find him biking around trendy cities like Houston and Portland or enjoying a dark beer, usually not at the same time.
