Madison, Wis. (March 29, 2016) - TASC’s Microbusiness Regional Sales Director (RSD) Jim Yinko was honored in the March issue of In Business magazine. He was showcased as one of Madison’s 2016 most promising 40 under 40 young business professionals.
Jim holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin and joined TASC in 2008. He has consistently ranked as one of the highest producing Microbusiness RSDs — working with tax professionals, financial planners, and insurance agents to bring tax savings to sole proprietors and other small business owners.
In his spare time, Jim devotes time to the American Heart Association’s annual walk as a team captain and coaches Kennedy Little League and Madison Hatters baseball. Jim’s belief is that when you make time to improve the lives of the people around you, “You create great relationships, give back, and have all the time you need to finish other goals.”
Steve Kielman, Regional Vice President and Jim’s direct supervisor, comments, “We are very proud of Jim and his contributions to the growth of the Microbusiness Sales Division and to the Dane County community. Congratulations Jim!”

Madison, Wis. (February 1, 2016) – TASC (Total Administrative Services Corporation), a provider of tax-advantaged medical and other benefits account management services, today announced that their Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Steve Cable has been named the CFO of the Year by In Business Magazine.
With more than 30 years of public accounting and manufacturing experience, Steve Cable’s impressive career boasts a strong history of business growth—both in top-line sales, as well as bottom-line profits—including a record of accomplishments in cross-functional team building, cost savings, acquisitions and business results.
Last year, TASC had an interim Chief Operating Officer (COO) position that it needed desperately to fill. Due to Steve’s thorough understanding of TASC’s business model and operating metrics, the company’s Board of Advisors recommended him for the job. Steve filled that role comfortably and seamlessly, allowing Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dan Rashke and other senior management to focus instead on a variety of other important growth initiatives. As a result, Steve has cemented his place as an integral part of the executive management team at TASC, bringing his much-needed financial leadership, experience and focus to a firm committed to organic and external growth.
“Since Steve joined TASC the number of acquisitions has increased by three or four times the amount previously, not only in number but in size as well. He helped not only in financing of the acquisitions, but he assisted the operational group in building competency in acquisition absorption as well,” said Dan Rashke, CEO of TASC. “And because of Steve’s five years of experience and capability, he was able to move into the COO spot easily and keep a burden off me and the rest of our management team.”
