The Information Technology Entrepreneur Network, an organization dedicated to advancing the IT ecosystem of the St. Louis area, named three additions to its Entrepreneur in Residence program Tuesday, according to a press release.

Michael Gaddis, former chief executive of CoreExpress, and Bryan Garcia, former vice president of technology at TALX and CTO at Equifax, are ITEN’s new entrepreneurs in residence. They are joined by Don Dent, who has served as CFO at SADAR 3D and Carbolytic Materials and will be the program’s first CFO in Residence.

The additions will double the size of the program, which was launched in fall 2013. Existing entrepreneurs in residence are John Grispon, a former Microsoft executive, ML Helbig and Chuck Vallurupalli.

The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, the Missouri Technology Corporation, and Civic Progress have been supporters of the program.
