Ian Burk


  • Global Executive Director, M&A Integration, Dell Software
  • MBA, Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and BBA from St. Edward’s University

Since starting in sales with technology firm Dell in 1997, Ian has spent the years since in broader roles including regional leadership posts, enterprise marketing, strategy, and corporate development. For the past several years he has been focused on merger integration as part of the original team that launched Dell Software Group primarily via acquisitions. Being fortunate enough to be involved with two-thirds of Dell’s acquisitions since 2009 has given Ian a chance to meet hundreds of entrepreneurs, travel the world, and see many business models from early-stage to buy-out candidates.

Ian holds an MBA in general management from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and BBA in business and management from St. Edward’s University.

In addition, he serves as Board Chair for Ascend Center for Learning, an adult education non-profit that allows a second chance for motivated learners.
