Purchase Makes Baker Sole Principal of IBA Consultants

Mark Baker, president of IBA Consultants Inc., has announced in a news release that he has purchased the remaining 10 percent of company shares from Israel Berger of New York City. The purchase makes Baker the sole principle of the company.

"Israel and I worked together for a long time and we were quite successful in the growth of our company," Baker said in the release. "However, this change was necessary to address philosophical differences we experienced as the years progressed. At IBA we look forward to continuing to lead our industry as we bring the latest innovative technology and advanced service methodologies to our clients."

According to the release, Baker, whose career began by conducting failure investigations while working on his mechanical engineering degree, teamed with Berger in 1989. In 1996, the two formed IBA Consultants, an engineering firm specializing in high-rise envelopes, glass and glazing consultation, and Baker became managing partner. He has continually purchased ownership shares from Berger throughout the years.
