Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

IAO Partners derives its name from the Marine Corps mantra “Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.”—key qualities developed, honed, and ingrained in Brandon Dufrene, our founder and former US Marine. Inspired and directed by the very strengths that served him as a combat leader during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Brandon has developed a unique set of leadership and management skills that have translated into and are the hallmark of IAO Partners.

At IAO Partners, “Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.” is the philosophy we apply to your project. No amount of pre-planning or preparation can account for all possibilities. The challenge is being able to respond quickly, intelligently and decisively to successfully accomplish the mission.

We also recognize that desire and attitude are not enough. That is why, at IAO Partners, our management, team members and partners have repeatedly demonstrated the quality of character and the ability to not only succeed but exceed expectations. That requires skill and experience in addition to the right attitude. OORAH!!!
