MINNEAPOLIS – January 3, 2024  – Turnberry Solutions announced today the appointment of Allen Debes as Chief Executive Officer and President. Allen will replace Jim Kelly, who will become Chairman of the Board and remain a strategic advisor for the company.

Allen joined Turnberry in 2023 as President and Chief Growth Officer. Prior to joining Turnberry, Allen has led a variety of business, technology, and consulting organizations, most recently as CEO of Nexient. Allen has worked as a consultant and consulting leader in several Big Five and smaller consulting firms, as well as served as a senior leader at two Fortune 500 companies.

Our Turnberry team is remarkable, as is our ever-growing list of clients, and I am inspired to lead the organization for years to come.”
