John Turner – Owner

John was immersed at a very early age in marketing and sales, with most of the family earnings derived from retail and seasonal sales. His first computer was acquired at the age of eight, when his father took a computer as a down payment for a car. Even though John was forbidden from touching the computer he did so anyway by taking the computer into his closet and powering it on. It was at this moment that John’s true passion for technology emerged and his life’s path started to unfold.

Since that fateful day, John has led a dynamic technical career helping some of Americas largest companies manage complex computer programming, marketing and cyber security initiatives. He is a natural born problem solver who designs and develops cost effective, high-performance technology solutions to meet any challenge.

John’s recent accomplishments include leading all technical and cyber-security initiatives for the largest transportation and logistics company in North America and the 11th largest natural gas utility in the United States.
