TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s tech ecosystem, is recognizing Indiana’s tech builders with the announcement of the second annual Tech 25 Class of 2016. Vennli’s Manager of Customer of Customer Success, John Henry, made the list.
In 2015, TechPoint launched the Tech 25, a prestigious selection of twenty-five individuals who are critical and exceptional performers helping to grow our community’s tech and tech-enabled companies, but who — not being the CEO or other top executives — don’t get celebrated publicly as often as they deserve.
Tech 25 winners represent a wide range of roles within tech companies, such as software developers, financial analysts, marketing directors and product managers. Executives could only nominate one team member for the Tech 25 Class of 2016, and a total of 57 Indiana technology companies participated in the nomination process this year.
At Vennli, John Henry combines his interests in consulting and entrepreneurship as Manager of Customer Success. John began working there while earning his MBA at the University of Notre Dame. Prior to joining Vennli, John launched two successful online startups, worked in new product development at Corporate Executive Board, and led consulting engagements in Washington, D.C. for Booz Allen Hamilton.
“John has been an instrumental part of our team as we experience rapid growth. Our product’s mission is to incorporate customer choice insights into business decisions, and John lives this every day. He drives our client engagements towards success and advocates for our customers’ needs internally. Additionally, he has a lot of energy and is just a great guy to have on the team,” says Bart Frischknecht, VP of Research & Customer Success at Vennli.
Winners were selected from three main categories, reinforcing the core roles that building product and building revenue play: 10 in tech product/R&D, 8 in sales/marketing, and 7 in “other.” In addition to being star performers at their companies, winners are committed team players who build others up through mentoring, volunteering and positive example and are committed to contributing to the broader tech community.
The entire Tech 25 Class of 2016 is viewable here.
