Our Team

Triangle-PS300

At the heart of our team is the friendship between the founders Dan and Julian. As millennials, both are familiar with their generation, grasp the mental models, social tools, communication styles and priorities of this age of hyper-individualism and personalization at scale.  They recognize that to enable businesses to serve such highly fragmented markets, The Telosity Company will require an inner cohesion that only comes with its well-articulated purpose and identity.
