Adam Barlow, Principal and Founder


The project management professionals at Baseline Controls are led by principal and founder Adam Barlow. Adam has over 25 years of experience providing project management services to Fortune 500 clients like Novartis, Bayer Healthcare, Pfizer, GSK, Kraft Foods, Pepsi Bottling Co., Cree, Merck, and
Patheon/ThermoFisher.

Adam started his career in construction management building new, and retrofitting, processing plants around the world. He worked his way up the ranks from project engineer to becoming a corporate project controls manager leading the department. This technical and managerial experience gained over the first ten years of his career was the jumping off point for creating a new specialized company. Adam formed Baseline Controls Inc. in 2010 making a former employer and mentors his first clients. Since 2012, Baseline Controls has continued to add staff and professional resources focused on the mission.

An engineer and planner at heart, Adam grew up building with Legos and admiring new construction before attending N.C. State University’s College of Engineering. Today, he relishes the opportunity to put the pieces of the puzzle together for his clients’ projects, and these clients appreciate and rely on his expertise and his team’s passion for planning.


Ray Carper, Project Controls Manager


Ray joined Baseline in 2015 as a project controls engineer after five years working in project engineering and has since collaborated with a wide range of clients including GSK, Moderna, Seqirus, Hodess, and Novartis among many others. He’s experienced in schedule development, project controls, cost controls, and portfolio management.

He’s been instrumental in the growth of Baseline from a recruiting, training, and development perspective and has become a manager within the company not only handling projects for clients but training and developing new Baseline project controls engineers. He looks forward to continuing to expand his skill set and tackle more projects, while helping Baseline grow into the go-to project management group for companies both in the Triangle Region and globally.

Scott Reynolds, Project Controls Manager, PMP


Scott began his career in IT Project Management at IBM. During his 16-year tenure there, he worked on many high-profile IT projects with major corporations. He found this to be very challenging and a great learning experience as each project poses new challenges for growth. Scott later achieved his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification during his transition from IBM to Baseline Controls in 2017.

Scott tells us, “The skill of Project Management has a set of fundamentals that can be applied to any project. When I changed industries from IT to Life Sciences, I was able to come up to speed quickly and make the transition seamless.” Today, Scott helps Cross Functional teams translate business requirements into Project schedule solutions.  It is important to Scott that the newer PM's also understand the lessons he has learned along the way.
