"...there is simply no one else who can match our ability to teach execution—the key element to success in any organization."

IPS Learning, the leading provider of executive education for strategy execution, today announced moves that solidify its position in executive education and significant growth and expansion, namely a name and logo change, as well as the opening of a new headquarters office in the East Coast technology hub of McLean, Virginia.
The name change formally recognizes the company’s core focus on executive education and knowledge transfer. IPS Learning currently trains senior professionals and executives in operations, engineering, information technology and project and program management in some of the world’s most successful technology companies.
In addition, IPS Learning has established a new headquarters office in the Washington, DC suburb of McLean, VA. This move reflects the company’s focus on growing its presence both in the federal information technology space, as well as in major commercial technology clients. This office complements the company’s strong West Coast presence in Silicon Valley.
According to Thomas Carter, IPS Learning’s president and CEO, “We are thrilled to continue building our capacity and look forward to the strides we will make in 2011. While there are many companies who can be hired to come into an organization and execute for them, there is simply no one else who can match our ability to teach execution—the key element to success in any organization.”
“The name change and expanded presence on the East Coast are significant steps toward our goals of building long-term value for the business and delivering a world-class product for clients, regardless of location,” says Gavin Turner of Mainsail Partners. “As organizations increase investment in technology expertise and infrastructure, IPS Learning is well positioned to capitalize on the continued growth in this category.”
