John J. Overton

Owner and CFO

John Overton is an owner and the CFO of Turn Key Solutions, LLC. John builds and manages the financial strategies to fund our growth. Beyond these and other roles typical of a CFO, John loves serving the hundreds of team members we have employed over the years, helping them build their careers, working through their life challenges, and providing them with competitive compensation and benefits.

John is a passionate advocate for small businesses and the communities in which we work. He currently serves as chairman of the Small Business Council and is a board member of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (www.LABI.org). Also with LABI, he has served as chairman of both the Technology Council and Healthcare Council. With the National Federation of Independent Business (www.NFIB.com) in Louisiana, he is a member of the Leadership Council and was a past chairman. John served as a member of both the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (www.BRAC.org), where he was also three-time chairman of the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council. He was a member of the Small Business Advisory Council for Louisiana Economic Development and is currently an appointed member of the Louisiana Health Care Commission for the Louisiana Department of Insurance.

John’s background in entrepreneurship began when he and his wife, Wendy, started their first business in 1995 while he was finishing pre-med at the University of Texas, San Antonio. Although success in the service industry led to a different career path than that of his father and grandfather, both of whom were doctors in Hammond, Louisiana, it eventually brought John home in 2000 to help Turn Key Solutions’ startup. John earned his MBA at the University of Phoenix in 2003.

“Chauffeur” and “cheerleader” for his kids are among John’s favorite titles. All three teens are accomplished martial artists, with the oldest two having earned their third-degree blackbelt and the youngest a recently minted black belt. Weekend breakfasts—especially waffles or pancakes from scratch—are a sacred ritual, one that has earned John one of his other favorite titles, “Count Spatula.”

Managers

Brandon Barrett

Vice President of Operations

Since joining the team at Turn Key Solutions in 2008 Brandon has held the roles of Project Manager, Technical Services Manager and became VP of Operations in 2018.  Brandon’s current role involves integrating the internal departments in a way that provides the highest level of service to our clients.  He is instrumental in converting the company owners’ vision for Turn Key Solutions into reality.  He has been deeply involved in the design and implementation of the data center environment used for private cloud hosting, backups, and VoIP, as well as in developing policies and procedures used by our team to deliver consistent and effective results.  Brandon has also played key roles in projects for our Healthcare, Government, and SMB clients that range from the implementation of Virtualization, Enterprise Storage, Hyperconvergence, complex Wide Area Networks, multi-layered security, disaster recovery planning, migrations to private cloud and Microsoft 365, PACS systems, EMR, and highly available connectivity solutions for remote cardiac telemetry.  Brandon will tell you that by far, the part of his role he enjoys the most is the opportunity to have recruited, mentored, and trained dozens of technicians throughout the years and identify those with strong leadership potential for key positions in the organization.

Prior to his tenure at Turn Key Solutions, Brandon did not start out in the IT field early on, but in 2001 while working for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office, a mentor spotted his potential and started him on his career in the IT field.   While there, Brandon was responsible for telephony, networking, server infrastructure, and security.  He led many projects to modernize the IT department, including implementing the first Storage Area Network, moving servers off-site to a remote COLO facility for improved availability, and upgrades from Frame Relay circuits to SONET and MetroEthernet service for site-to-site connectivity.  He also implemented the first internally managed firewall and IDS solutions for the organization.  Brandon was heavily involved in Mobile Data for Uniform Patrol and Detectives divisions, disaster recovery planning and response with training from FEMA, and participated in several local and regional committees focused on different aspects of Public Safety technology.  He held various leadership roles within the IT team during his tenure there.

Brandon is a parent to two young adults, both of whom are beginning promising careers of their own.  Having spent many years where all his free time was spent traveling from one youth athletic event to another, Brandon now finds time to enjoy traveling, attending concerts and sporting events, fishing, and a neverending classic car restoration.  He is also very committed to supporting the Law Enforcement community he was a part of for many years and participates in various activities serving the Baton Rouge area.  He likes continuing to learn new skills, meets new clients, and attend industry events to better understand the challenges facing businesses and how to respond to them.
