Chance Mannina

CEO, President and Founder

Chance is a senior executive who led a start-up to become one of the fastest growing software companies in the Northeast and the dominant player globally for its space. He accomplished this through a history of creating and developing hyper-growth sales organizations as well as multiple acquisition turn-arounds all with the simple moto of, “Have an engaging challenging conversation with your customer and figure out how we can uniquely and positively impact their bottom line”.

As Founder, CEO and President of SolutionCogs, Chance initiated SolutionCogs as a response to both amazing ever evolving technology companies looking to get their solutions to the market as well as large enterprises consistently getting in their own way to take advantage of such great technology.  His vision was that of marrying these great technologies into a set of vertical specific solution solving some of the biggest challenges large enterprises face today.  Thus, SolutionCogs was born.

Dan Hess

CDO, Founder

Dan has been working for the past 23 years in the analytics industry focusing on helping organizations tap into the vast potential within their data. Working across organizations, he was constantly surprised at the lack of pre-built solutions available for solving common business challenges. Based on these experiences, Dan co-founded Vizadata in 2016 with a focus on developing innovative cloud-based, visual-analytics solutions addressing the universal questions businesses are asking but unable to answer quickly. Prior to Vizadata Dan cofounded Ironside, a nationally-recognized analytics services and sales organization, which he grew over 20 years to more than 20M+ in top-line revenue.

As Chief Data Officer of SalesCogs, Dan’s focus is that of tying the aggregation and expose of data from our parter assets into analytics solution that will not only help business managers better understand the state of their business, but also leverage predictive reporting to proactively make purposeful and positively impacting decisioning and often operational upscaling of their PnL.
