Co-Founder & COO
Kyle Howell serves as Co-Founder and COO of VENSEARCH and brings a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to the technology advisory and consulting industry. His journey into this field was shaped by over seven years of dedicated service as a CFO in the low-voltage industry. During this time, Kyle recognized that clients needed a more efficient way to discover, engage, and collaborate with technology vendors.
Prior to co-founding VENSEARCH, Kyle founded BeanKloud, LLC, a company specializing in fractional CFO services, business consulting, and software development. However, it was during his seven-year tenure at CooperCraft Communications, Inc. that he gained deep insights into the IT & low-voltage sector. As Chief Financial Officer and Controller, Kyle oversaw critical aspects of the business, including finances, operations, and human resources.
Kyle's extensive experience in the low-voltage industry allowed him to recognize a significant need: helping clients navigate the complex world of technology. This realization inspired the founding of VENSEARCH.
