Ian McCormack

A Registered Professional Forester and Certified Executive Coach, I’ve had the pleasure of almost forty years of operational and strategic business and organizational leadership experience, as well as being able to hone partnership development, community and government engagement capabilities along the way.


Following my career in Forestry, I was a co-owner and senior leader of a global engineering firm focused on the development and execution of business and operational strategies in the Forest Products, Oil & Gas/Industrial, and Mining and Minerals sectors.


Ten years ago, I felt it was time to spend more time closer to home serving and supporting the work of businesses and organizations that make a difference in our communities, and the people of this region. And Compass was born! 

I believe strongly in the tenants of ‘servant leadership’ and am committed to showing up and supporting the development and success of those around me. I’m keenly interested in who people are, how they think, and what they bring to work. And as a thinking partner, I can bring clarity of purpose, solutions to problems, and aligned results to my clients’ organizations and professional lives.


My focus of practice is working with senior executives, operational and community leaders and helping them meet the demanding challenges of their work environments. I’m passionate about working with individuals and teams to maximize their effectiveness as leaders; focusing on alignment and decision-making and developing solutions that enhance the work of their teams and best serve the benefactors of their work.

When I'm not helping my clients navigate, you'll most likely find me out on the land or water. Nature has always given me both energy and peace and spending time at camp with family and friends is a cherished part of life. As is burying myself in books whenever I have a quiet moment, especially Canadian history.
