Dan Irvin Named to DBusiness Detroit 500

Southfield, Michigan, October 24, 2023 -123NET CEO Dan Irvin has again been named to the Detroit 500, a comprehensive list of business leaders from more than 30 industries across metro Detroit and Michigan.

Published by DBusiness, Detroit 500 honorees are considered some of the most influential business leaders in Michigan based on extensive biographical research done by the magazine’s staff. The individuals showcased were selected based on a number of factors including company size, growth rate, geographical reach, recent accomplishments and extensive personal networks.

Under Irvin’s leadership, 123NET has steadily grown the depth and breadth of its services to make Michigan the “best connected on the planet” by providing premier fiber internet, colocation, and voice services for local communities and businesses. In the past few months alone, 123NET announced three major projects:

  • Participation in a $87.5M middle mile project with Peninsula Fiber Network linking Michigan to Chicago’s connectivity hub via fiber cable under Lake Michigan
  • $65M project to improve and deploy broadband across Allegan County
  • Launch of the new Grand Rapids Internet Exchange to improve performance and reduce costs for West Michigan internet users.

An entrepreneur at heart, Irvin suggested that the best advice he ever received was to “remember you’ll always regret what you didn’t do, rather than what you did.” In the feature, Irvin discussed his approach to problem-solving, saying “obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” It’s an approach that’s helped fuel his company’s remarkable growth.
