I agree that System Monitor is a bit of a hog in full mode. Often nice to quickly pull up though and sort everything with one click by %CPU or Memory to see who's the culprit. Sometimes it takes me a sec with top to remember "O-n-<enter>-<space>-<space>-<space>".
I might even specialize that geek to be a Statistician. I've got the math background, but wish I had done more with stats, and now that's where I spend a lot of my time. We've even gone to the local university to recruit a stat grad student for some of our recent work. I was thinking that was a need pretty specific to my epidemiological project, but I can see how many others might need similar skills. Sounds like your geek would be a big part of the business planning too. Good thoughts.
And adding someone that can do sales is critical. Not sure I've met a hacker who fits that personality type. Probably a big part of the reason you have so many startup failures -- hackers who don't sell. Yes, this is probably one of the most important hats.
