ABOUT IAN

A global business entrepreneur, Ian steers clients through the complexities of growing a business while navigating government and commercial policies across international markets.

Ian RH Tailyour is a Senior Adviser with Bryant Songy Snell Global Partners who advises clients about start-up and international business issues.

Now of Oxford, Mississippi, Ian built a furniture manufacturing and marketing company in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam.

At age 26, Ian moved to Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam to start his own company, navigating the numerous governmental and commercial complexities to grow his business alongside the burgeoning Southeast Asia economic revitalization.

For 15 years, Ian lived in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where he successfully ran a furniture manufacturing business that sold to companies such as Wal-Mart, Williams- Sonoma, and Dillard’s, as well as firms located in Dubai, Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, South America and the Caribbean. To establish and operate that business he had to navigate the numerous complexities – bureaucratic, personnel, language and financial – of a country then in the midst of a transition from a Communist-run centralized economy to a free market economy. In addition to managing the production end of his business, Ian was responsible for sales and shipping, as well as invoicing and collections. He thus gained a vast reservoir of skill and experience in production and sales and in the general management of a large, complex business. Ian sold his company and returned to the U.S. in 2015.

Ian pursues business opportunities around the world with an eye to replicate the success he enjoyed in Viet Nam. In the last two years, Ian has travelled to 13 countries to pursue business and marketing opportunities, including Cuba, Morocco and Uzbekistan. He participated in five trade missions with Governor Phil Bryant for the State of Mississippi.

A dual citizen of Great Britain and the United States, Ian studied at Norwalk College in Connecticut, at the University of Virginia, and at SGS Social Accountability 8000 Hong Kong. An avid adventurer and sailor with expertise in navigation, Ian has participated in numerous sailboat races and regattas in the South China Sea, the Gulf of Thailand, and most recently in the Gulf of Mexico.
