Southfield, Michigan, September 9, 2021 – 123NET President & CEO Dan Irvin has 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 enacted its mission of making Michigan the “best connected on the planet” by providing premier fiber internet, colocation, and voice services for local communities and businesses.

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.
