Mountaineer-Marathoner Applies Focus and Fortitude to Turnkey Solutions

CEO of the Year finalist, Dan Gannon cuts through the minutiae


Published:

 

Dan Gannon has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and run a marathon on every continent at least twice and is on track to crack a 100 marathon total in 2017. It’s that kind of focus and fortitude that inform the way he runs Turnkey Solutions, which offers advanced test automation software, consulting and management.

A voracious reader of leadership books, Gannon has cultivated his own forthright management style, starting with the motto, “Let's not complicate this."

Colleagues say he possesses a special ability to cut through the minutiae, eliminating the complexity and confusion, and spurring people to action. From sales to marketing to development to support, Gannon influences individuals at every level of the organization, never letting any one person go home thinking they didn't matter. Colleagues say Dan has the unique ability to synthesize even the most complex concepts, take a team in the throes of chaos and almost instantaneously help them self-organize or cut through the inevitable processes that occasionally garner more attention than the end results.
