Dan Mayleben named CFO of the Year

November 18, 2016

Minneapolis, MN, November 18, 2016—HelpSystems today announced that Dan Mayleben has been named CFO of the Year for medium-sized private companies in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s annual recognition of financial executives.


Dan won this distinction due to his leadership at fast-growing HelpSystems over the past two years in addition to remarkable accomplishments in 20 years at other Twin Cities-based software firms like HighJump Software and Amcom Software (now Spok). At each of these organizations, Dan has partnered with CEO Chris Heim to rally teams to deliver software that solves real problems for organizations. This, in turn, has led to exciting growth and a fun, rewarding culture.


“It’s an honor to receive this award,” said Mayleben. “But of course without the amazing teams I’ve worked with – the people developing the software, marketing and selling it, implementing, and supporting it – the growth, the satisfaction does not come.”


“I’m thrilled to see Dan get recognized for all his hard work, dedication, and results,” said Chris Heim, CEO, HelpSystems. “It’s an honor working with him every day.”


A feature on Dan appeared in today’s Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
