Ivan has spent a lifetime in the laser cutting industry. In the late 1980s, Ivan acquired an interest in a small regional laser cutting jobshop and grew this business into a national chain of jobshops, a laser systems design, supply and service business, along with representation of a leading global laser manufacturer.

The job shop group operated multi-disciplined applications for laser material processing, from flatbed cutting and laser marking to complex applications of tube processing, pillow plate welding and cladding. This experience gave Ivan a deep understanding of the challenges facing the industry. But more than that he has been inspired by technology and its opportunities and has applied his knowledge to innovating for the benefit of future organizations.

As a co-founder of ipLaser and Tempus Tools, Ivan has a desire to see laser businesses running as efficiently as technology can allow. With a background in accounting and business management, Ivan’s eye for detail and drive for continuous improvement has led to the growth of ipLaser and Tempus Tools.

Ivan is excited to see Tempus Tools reach its potential both in capabilities and in the growth of its user base as we help more laser businesses around the world succeed and thrive.
