Washington, DC, May 2, 2005: TCG (Turner Consulting Group), the Federal IT and management solutions specialists, today announced that company President Daniel A. Turner has been named Chief Information Officer of the Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization and World Entrepreneurs’ Organization Washington, DC Chapter.
As CIO Mr. Turner will set and implement the technology strategy for one of the largest YEO/WEO chapters in the world. This includes development of the web site, maintenance of the chapter’s various systems and databases, management of the chapter’s technological resources, creation of registration and membership systems, and oversight of the chapter’s various domain names.
YEO/WEO is an international, non-profit educational organization dedicated to the support, education, and encouragement of entrepreneurs, and to helping them improve their companies and themselves.

The Washington, DC chapter has 180 members, and combined employs approximately 6000 people in the DC area.
“Entrepreneurs are some of the most demanding and intelligent people in business today,” said Mr. Turner. “They demand excellence in everything they touch, and they know when something’s not as good as it could be. Exceeding their expectations is a challenge I’m looking forward to meeting head-on, using my experience running one of the most innovative IT advisory services companies in the region.”
After a successful one-year term, Mr. Turner stepped down as president of the chapter and continues his involvement on the global services board of EO, the parent organization of both YEO and WEO.
