TechCXO, a leading provider of C-Suite-level strategic and functional consulting services for technology companies, is furthering its nationwide expansion with a new presence in Minneapolis-St. Paul. The firm has tapped veteran technology sales and marketing expert Tom Venable and Finance, Technology and Private Equity pro Thom Dasher to lead TechCXO’s efforts here.

“For business, the Greater Twin Cities is well known as a hub for large corporations, but there is growing and dynamic technology and entrepreneurial base with many exciting companies in medical devices, software and tech services,” said Tom Venable, TechCXO Partner. “We will be focused on delivering in three primary ways for the local tech community: launching the sales and marketing efforts for a new business or product line; changing the slope of client companies’ growth curves; and helping sales and marketing migrate from the offline world to the on-line world for both B2C and B2B environments.

“I’ve worked with all sizes of organizations from pre-revenue start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, and I’ve never been more excited than in joining TechCXO, primarily because of the expertise of a high-powered, interconnected network of professionals across multiple disciplines,” Mr. Venable added.

TechCXO has been included in the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest growing private companies in each of the last five years.

During the past 28 years Tom has worked with over a dozen founders and entrepreneurs helping them launch the revenue side of their business. Over the past 15 years, Tom led the revenue charge at Digital River, Innocentive, Gelco Information Network (now Concur), and Rainmaker Systems. In those posts he organized, recruited, and structured sales, marketing and delivery teams on a global basis and has personally recruited, managed and coached thousands of client facing professionals and managers in North America and Europe.

Mr. Venable specializes in helping both emerging and growth companies that aren’t satisfied with their top-line growth projections.

Mr. Venable holds a bachelors degree in Economics from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. He volunteers in his spare time coaching championship high school football teams in his hometown of Eden Prairie, MN. View Mr. Venable’s full bio at

Mr. Dasher is a top-performing executive with experience building entrepreneurial, software and financial services products for Fortune 500 and high-growth corporations. Most recently he was CFO and owner of Heliplane, LLC, a manufacturer of the AirTrailer, a game-changing new technology in cargo aviation. Prior to that he was CFO and an investor in EiVia, a leading provider of predictive intelligence technology, specializing in trade promotion planning and complex data warehouse analytics. Major clients include Nielsen, PepsiAmericas, Procter & Gamble, and Cargill. Mr. Dasher holds an MBA from the Kellogg School at Northwestern University.

Mr. Dasher specializes in creating top line growth for technology-enabled companies as well as Merger & Acquisition and Risk Management counsel and services. View Mr. Dasher's full bio at:
