FOUNDER & CEO
McIlnay, a former prosecutor, became interested in the IT field during her early efforts to bring modern computing to the State Bar of Texas, while serving as its General Counsel in the early 90’s. She formed her initial company, Independent Professional Management, Inc. (IPM) in 1992, and has maintained it as an ongoing multi-million dollar global business while transforming it from supplemental staffing to full-service ERP consulting. In 2005 she began re-emphasizing IPM’s supply chain and asset management practice with the creation of IPM Asset Solutions, a specialized firm combining the latest RFID technologies with strong back-office implementation processes.
Sheila is a graduate of the University of Nebraska and the University of Nebraska School of Law. She has served as clerk for the United States 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, worked for the Colorado Supreme Court as a disciplinary counsel, and been a felony prosecutor in Colorado. In 1990, she was selected to run the largest regional office of the General Counsel of the State Bar of Texas, eventually being appointed as the General Counsel of the State Bar.
IPM has been recognized as one of the top 50 woman-owned businesses in Houston. McIlnay serves on several boards, such as Go For the Greens and the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.
