Employee Profile: Ian Glasgow and AIChE
On sourcing industry innovation and building a network of trusted industry experts
Contributed by Ian Glasgow
Successful projects depend on the effective use of technology and innovation by a collaborative project team that trusts each other.
Technology and innovation can help maximize project economics, or used ineffectively, undercut potential returns. AIChE programming allows me to keep up with technology, innovation, government regulation, and new economic drivers. This means I can give clients the best new information and help them harness innovation to maximize project economics.
No project is performed by just a single company. They’re a collaboration of multiple entities that must work together. As an active AIChE member, I have developed a network of trusted colleagues through collaborating on conferences, technical programming, and addressing institute initiatives. This means not only that I get dive deep into new industry drivers, but also lets me get to know colleagues as more than just a name on a business card. So when we collaborate on client projects, we already have a strong foundation. This combination of industry knowledge and a trusted network helps results in projects that seek design and operations that maximize ROI.
Ian’s latest endeavor with AIChE is Chairing the Tenth Annual Southwest Regional Process Technology Conference (SPTC).
