Enterprise open source expert David M. Turner has joined the UK’s no.1 Drupal development specialists, IO1 as the new Director of Professional Services.

Software development consultancy IO1 is best known for its work in the area of Drupal, the open source content management framework used by the likes of Sony and The White House. Despite only forming four years ago, IO1 has built up an impressive client portfolio of Enterprise and government clients and is considered one of the leading providers of large scale Drupal development in the world.

Due to rising demand for large scale Drupal installations, David has been appointed to run the professional services division at IO1, which is expected to become the largest professional services division for Drupal in the world. David will also be heavily involved in growing IO1’s strategic partnering programme.

David was selected for his extensive experience within the open source IT industry. He has particular expertise in the areas of Enterprise software and Internet Technology for eCommerce and Marketing. His knowledge also stretches into areas such as business development and negotiation, as well as Intellectual Property law and open software licensing.

David, who has worked with the likes of BT, IBM, Red Hat, HSBC and Vodafone, is the first of several new members to join the IO1 team, including one of the world’s top Drupal experts, the identity of whom is being kept a closely guarded secret until they officially join the team in April.

Turner said of his new role,

‘I love a challenge and learning something new, especially if it takes me into a different area of business. The rising demand for large scale Drupal installations also brings with it the need to deliver the type of professional services solution that is demanded by the enterprise market.

The importance of real enterprise expertise has never been more relevant to the market and my new role as Professional Services Director at IO1 will enable me to help shape the future of professional services for Drupal’.

MD of IO1, John F Galvin, commented,

‘We are very pleased to welcome David on board, as he was by far the most experienced person for the role. We were looking for someone that had enthusiasm, lots of new ideas and a fresh outlook and that is certainly what we get with David. We have some very exciting plans for IO1 over the coming months and David’s expertise will prove invaluable to helping these plans move from concept to reality.’


Notes to Editor

IO1 was started by John F Galvin and Jonathan Russell after they worked together for a number of years in the corporate sector. After spending years building large scale systems they wanted to get out and have a go at building the solutions they always wanted to build for customers who want to be at the forefront of their sector.

They have steadily, over the last 4 years, built up an extremely strong team who have focussed on developing processes and systems that produce stunning results for clients. IO1 is focussed on growth through strategic partnering and attributes much of its success to date to its existing strategic partners.
