Background & Experience
Strategic Interchange evolved from division of Dun-Map Inc, a company focused on mobility and transportation information systems, founded by Ian Dunlop.
|Ian has 20 years innovative management, strategic planning, design, marketing, communications and publishing expertise. Ian founded his company, Dun-Map, while still in university working on an undergraduate degree in Urban Planning. Since then, he has accumulated an extensive knowledge mapping, transportation & design technologies, particularly in the public transit, government and real estate development sectors. He is adept in the use of software, tools and techniques used in graphic design, GIS, transportation modelling, online communication, software development, and programming. Ian effectively manages staff, project teams, suppliers and external resources to fulfill service to clients and stakeholders. He also has years of experience working on municipal committees, and liaising with many different departments and agencies. Ian is a maverick, able to merge conflicting ideas to reach common goals, focus on what the customer needs and how these goals are effectively and efficiently attained with the limitations of available time, resources and budget.|
Ian's academic credentials and training include: Urban & Regional Planning, Local Economic Development (Masters Degree), Transportation Modelling, Traffic Flow Analysis, Transit Planning, Facility Management, and Infrastructure Management.
In 2010, the map publishing interests of Dun-Map Inc. were merged with another long-established mapping firm, Mapmobility Corp, of Toronto. The two companies had been working together for several years, and the merger provides many benefits to Dun-Map's clients through greater production capacity and efficiencies. Ian continues to work with Mapmobility as an independent project consultant and to ensure a smooth transition for Dun-Map's clients and specialized projects.
