September 21, 2018

MINNEAPOLIS Sept. 21, 2018—HelpSystems today announced that Chris Heim has been named one of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s Most Admired CEOs in their annual recognition of movers and shakers in the Twin Cities. The award celebrates both professional accomplishments and community involvement for those at the helm of local organizations.

A fixture in the Twin Cities’ tech scene for more than 30 years, Heim received this accolade due to his knack for propelling software company growth and bringing out the best in everyone he encounters. He has led companies including HighJump Software and Amcom Software (now Spok) to positions of industry leadership alongside longtime business partner Dan Mayleben, HelpSystems’ CFO. Today he lends his business and people acumen to HelpSystems as it enables customers worldwide get a handle on their IT optimization and cybersecurity challenges. In addition, he has established an open company culture with an all-hands-on-deck focus on giving back to the community through a variety of programs.

“Chris Heim is famous for his ability to synthesize feedback from leaders across the company and pair it with his own remarkable judgement to make amazingly fast, perceptive decisions,” Mayleben said. “It’s been a career highlight for me to work alongside him for so many years and he truly deserves to be a Most Admired CEO.”
