Since its initial public offering, the company has had a succession of CEOs. Andrew Shearer became president and CEO of IDG in August, 2001. He has served since 1991 as president of the IDG York business unit, formerly Shearer Industrial Supply Co., one of the nine IDG founding companies. He has been a member of the board of directors and since the beginning and is also the largest single shareholder of IDG.
