Ian Hobkirk

Founder & President

Commonwealth was born out of Mr. Hobkirk’s desire to provide companies with a broad and purely objective perspective on how to solve supply chain problems without automatically resorting to expensive technology and “what made the last project successful.” Over his 20-year career, he has helped hundreds of companies reduce their distribution labor costs, improve space utilization, and meet their customer service objectives. He has formed supply chain consulting organizations for two different systems integration firms, and managed the supply chain execution practice at The Aberdeen Group, a leading technology analyst firm. Mr. Hobkirk’s opinions are regularly featured in publications such as DC Velocity, Supply Chain Management Review, Modern Materials Handling, and The Journal of Commerce.
