Kyle Ingram



From a young age, Kyle Ingram was always involved in music. Ultimately, and perhaps regretfully, he chose baseball over piano, but he continued years of choral singing from sixth grade straight through to his PhD. Kyle is a management consultant and Professor of Business at the University of California’s A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management. Kyle returned to the US after 10 years studying, teaching, and advising governmental policy in the United Kingdom.

He completed his PhD at the London School of Economics (LSE) and Political Science in 2012. Here, he developed research on the complexity of workplace relationships and explored the antecedents and consequences of “love-hate” (i.e., ambivalent) relationships with organizational leaders. Kyle was given a prestigious award for a case study he authored, which explains how to handle saboteurs during times of organizational change and growth. He has also received a number of teaching awards from the LSE and the University of Greenwich – including the Vice-Chancellor’s ‘Excellence in Education’ award in 2016.

In his spare time, Kyle enjoys cooking, hiking, running, diving into waves (i.e., trying to surf), sipping the occasional red, and traveling. Kyle grew up in San Antonio in Texas, and has been a member of a number of choral ensembles including Texas A&M’s Century Singers and the Holy Trinity Brompton choir. He deeply shares in the mission and values of Villa Musica’s vibrant music community.
