Pierce Dunn

Chairman and Co-founder, TalentWell Partners 

After spending 40 years building and investing in businesses, Dunn has started a new chapter. Profit & Loss has evolved to Purpose & Legacy.

Dunn collaborates with others to support social enterprises tackling the world’s most pressing challenges. His definition of success has changed from career success to global impact.

He has partnered with several accomplished and gifted YPO leaders to launch the Knowledge Impact Network. KIN is a movement connecting purpose-driven leaders and innovative social entrepreneurs to help solve some of the world’s most urgent challenges. They strive to secure a brighter future for all. KIN creates curated opportunities for leaders to share their skills, insights, and connections with high-impact projects and social entrepreneurs. KIN is focused on climate, education, economic opportunity, food security and health & well-being.

Dunn co-founded TELOS Software in 2019 for organizations to use technology to inventory and understand the skills and talents of their employees and contractors. His TELOS software provides each employee a customized pathway (including a mentoring platform) to achieve individual and organizational goals. TELOS provides an organization with a high ROI by matching employees with the right job, project opportunities and mentors. TELOS is also a reliable tool to implement Diversity, Equity & Inclusion policies and succession planning. It can be used for M&A due diligence and for post-closing integration to understand how skills can be leveraged.

As an entrepreneur, Dunn has helped build businesses in manufacturing, consulting, data management, software development and distribution.

He is a proud and active member of YPO and has the privilege of serving on the YPO International Board of Directors.
