Ian Patrick Sharp founded I. P. Sharp Associates in December 1964 with the other members of the team (Roger Moore, Ted McDorman, Don Smith, David Oldacre, Brian Daly, and James McSherry) and David Butler shortly after. Sharp remained president at the company until his retirement in 1989, although Reuters purchased the company in 1987. He was considered a major guiding force for IPSA and helped to produce its collaborative and innovative culture. Sharp was awarded the 1985 Iverson Award along with Dan Dyer of STSC.

I.P. Sharp was held together by electronics and camaraderie. And Ian.
