IPS has achieved significant growth over the years including record-setting revenue in 2016 and surpassing the 1,000 employee milestone in Q2 2017. The continuous evolution and success of the organization merit investments and strategic positioning to drive sustainable long-term growth. Therefore, the IPS Global Business Units, including the Americas Unit, were established to attain IPS’ growth goals and offer a consistent delivery platform that ensures a high level of quality and service expected by IPS clients.
In light of its growth, IPS announces the appointment of Mr. Mark A. Butler to President, Managing Director of the Americas Unit.

He started and managed IPS’ New Jersey office, and most recently was the General Manager of the Engineering Division where he was responsible for the strategic direction, market expansion, client development, and account management.
As Managing Director of the Americas Business Unit, Mr. Butler will lead IPS’ large operational footprint in the US, Canada, and South America, and pursue additional geographic and strategic areas within the Americas that strengthen IPS’ leading position for sustainable long-term growth.
