Turing Marks Triple-Digit Revenue Growth as Former Meta VP of Engineering, David Wei, Becomes First Executive Hire of 2023

The AI-powered technology services innovator is disrupting traditional tech consulting models following a strong uptake of new product offerings, an ever-growing client roster crossing multiple industries and a world-class stable of seasoned executives.

Turing, an AI-powered technology company that's breaking the traditional tech consulting services model with its Intelligent Talent Cloud, has firmly established itself as an industry trailblazer after confirming triple-digit YoY revenue growth and announcing David Wei, previously of Meta, as the company's first executive hire of 2023. Turing goes beyond the limits of incumbent tech services businesses by applying AI to vet and match world-class software engineers with leading global companies across a broad range of industries. In addition to triple-digit YoY growth in 2022, the company welcomed over two million global developers to its highly innovative AI platform. The company's success demonstrates the importance of having access to a pool of remote-working software developers while removing vetting and matching process obstructions that often slow the pace of innovation.

"Our goal at Turing is twofold - to support software developers in their professional journeys and provide the world's leading companies with the high-caliber talent needed to create groundbreaking innovations across the digital landscape - AI and data science is our secret sauce," said Jonathan Siddharth, CEO and Co-Founder of Turing. "The tremendous growth Turing experienced in 2022 and the addition of David to head our engineering team sets the tone for this year as we continue to transform tech services with our innovative Talent Cloud."

Wei, Turing's newly appointed Head of Engineering, will report directly to Siddharth and brings a wealth of world-class expertise to the position following over a decade at the helm of Meta's engineering department.

"Turing has built a global engineering community of millions of developers and leveraged AI to vet and match them with hundreds of customers consisting of some of the biggest names in multiple industries, " said David Wei, Head of Engineering at Turing. "Turing's position in the industry provides me with the perfect vantage point to explore and shape what the future holds with our very exceptional team."

Turing's ever-growing client base includes 400+ companies and consists of leading businesses covering a broad range of industries including software, social media, food & beverage, healthcare, automotive, and entertainment. Clients have leveraged the company's AI technology since 2019 to augment developer talent needs with the world's most deeply-vetted developers and teams. A significant growth marker for the company in 2022 was the successful launch of Turing Teams, a service in which the company works closely with clients to build out entire project teams of high-caliber developers in around two weeks as opposed to several months.

Turing's revenue growth and Talent Cloud advancements in 2022 also coincided with several executive appointments, including the company's first CFO, Alok Bhushan, who is responsible for financial strategy and operations, and also reports directly to Siddharth. Prior to joining Turing, he served as the CFO of Virta Health, where he led the company through its Series E funding round with Tiger Global and triple-digit annual growth. Before that, Bhushan was the Chief Financial Officer at Charlotte Tilbury, where he led the company through a period of intense international expansion across North America, Europe and Asia. He also ran the firm's M&A process which culminated in a successful majority sale of the business to the Spanish fragrance house Puig. Earlier in his career, Bhushan spent nearly a decade at Yext across multiple senior finance leadership roles, building and growing the company from a Series A startup through its IPO on the NYSE.

Additional executive appointments in 2022 included Onkar Dalal, previously with LinkedIn, as Head of Data Science & Analytics; Sekou White, previously with IBM and Meta, as Vice President of Marketing; Paula Griffin, previously of ZipRecruiter, as Director of Product; and Nick Clements, previously of Lyft, as Head of Legal. Turing was also named one of America's Best Startup Employers for 2022 by Forbes.

CannaBabe is Quickly Emerging in the Entertainment Industry After Debut of Exclusive Invite-Only Launch Event: ‘Kiss Me, I’m a CannaBabe’
Kiss Me, I'm A CannaBabe

While their event had high expectations, the execution spoke for itself. The founders had received an overwhelming amount of positive testimonials praising the curated atmosphere and intentions - it was quite inspiring.

Voices were amplified, gender gaps were diminished and the industry really showed out for the debut of CannaBabe's private invite only launch event: "Kiss Me, I'm A CannaBabe" last Thursday at the Brooklyn Detroit.

While their event had high expectations, the execution spoke for itself. The founders had received an overwhelming amount of positive testimonials praising the curated atmosphere and intentions - it was quite inspiring. Diversifying the industry is no small task, but Mary Sharp and Jenna Kaltenberg found a fun and inclusive way to do so while also providing a safe and inviting environment for their guests. From the support from amazing sponsors to talented DJs keeping the event alive, and the amazing guests that embodied what it means to be a CannaBabe. It was an evening filled with music and art to curate a memorable night between elite cannabis brands and influential guests, aiming to provide an immersive, cannabis-friendly alternative to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! The event had hit full capacity weeks prior, and there were many that were unable to attend the debut; however, the energy of those who attended was immaculate. 

The local artist Sheefy McFly was performing live demonstrations of his work while also doing a giveaway of a painted skateboard deck along with a vintage McFly polaroid. DogHouse Cannabis co-branded the VIP lounge with Sheefy McFly decor reflecting the recent release of CRUD™️. Detroit Social Events and Curtis Lamar with Backwoods & Bonfires festival were generous enough to provide two VIP tickets to their annual summer festival hosted in Detroit. Hype showed out with their walking taco food truck to satisfy the munchie cravings of the 700+ attendees throughout the evening; it was hard to not have an appetite with so many engaging activations. Wynk was slinging sweet seltzers to provide guests with a balanced, light, social experience. Element Extractions was dabbling into their concentrates to ensure guests could be fully educated on their products while also learning how to get the potent high they were seeking for. Chill Medicated was serving up the syrup with their Mocktail bar to allow guests to sample their fast-acting syrup tinctures in a variety of fruity flavors and also gifting samples for guests to try later on. Chill Medicated was also providing massages with their topical body rubs for pain, inflammation and skin conditions. Each guest was allotted 5 minutes for a professional shoulder massage using the topicals, aiming to promote their latest lineup of Topicals To-Go that are intended for quick on the go use. With live back to back performances by DJ Kdirty and DJ Sillygirlcarmen, the evening was filled with house-tech vibes which is the perfect presetting to Movement creeping up quickly. These girls really know how to get the dance floor moving and grooving! Puff was generous enough to donate product to the CannaBabe pre-sesh for the ladies helping host the event, in addition to providing $1000 worth of product from their retail stores as a prize to a lucky guest. Additional brands, such as Light Sky Farms, Wana Brands, Michigander Fire, Heavyweight Heads, Flower of Life and Evolution Edibles all had table activations to connect and educate with guests at the event. CannaBabe is delighted to have such strong support from amazing local brands. They would like to recognize the brands and sponsors involved in the event that made this dream a reality. A special thank you to our presenting sponsor PUFF Cannabis Co. and Brand On Marketing for executing our vision visually. 

CannaBabe partnered with the Wana Brands FoundationBrand On Marketing and PUFF Cannabis Co to present a donation check in the amount of $6000 towards the chosen charity Alternatives for Girls on Thursday, March 30th. Every event hosted by CannaBabe will have a new charity organization, local to the area of the event is being hosted, to partner with and to donate proceeds from the event. By supporting CannaBabe, you support those less fortunate in local communities. 

"We believe there was a change that needed to happen and that change started with us throwing our first Cannababe Launch event, with a positive turnout of over 700 people throughout the evening from all over Michigan, out of state, consumers to investors, to people outside of the Cannabis industry looking to dip their toes into something they've never experienced or had been apart of. We have been to a multitude of events, and something we had noticed was that after every event everything just goes silent and it is the same 200 people we all know and no one or nothing new. We chose to use our voices to create a positive change and continue to spread awareness on not only the industry we are in, but the communities we are hosting these events in. With each event we throw we will be donating a percentage of the proceeds to a non profit organization we believe in. For this last event we donated a portion of the proceeds to Alternatives for Girls out of the SouthWest of Detroit. By acknowledging those out there who are in need of support, it will bring us all closer together as a community. We believe in throwing gatherings with a cause and spreading awareness for the bipoc, lgbtq+ community, and working together equally as any gender. Join us in continuing to make positive changes for not only us but everyone in the communities we are all a part of." - MaryJenna, CannaBabe Founders
