IRM Strategies grew from the multi-sector backgrounds of its two principals, John James O'Brien, CRM, MA LT and Robert Tornack, RN, MBA.

John and Rob are senior practitioners and organizational leaders who have brought an "accountability edge" to consulting work with multinationals and regional enterprises in Asia and Canada. Each has held leadership and advisory roles in the governance of large systems, ensuring that their model for the knowledge-focused enterprise is grounded in reality.
