Agile project management tool with nice dashboard

I am looking for agile project management tool with nice executive dashboard. Currently I use x-planner  http://www.xplanner.org/ which is excellent agile project management tool but does not offer executive dashboard for CIO or CTO.  Couple of project in my company uses http://www.basecamphq.com/ which offers excellent dashboard but is not build for agile software development like sprints, backlogs, ilterations  etc. Any recommendation for Project management tool which offers agile development with dashboard for upper management like CIO or CTO.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have to admit that I have only done some research on tools, so these recommendations do not come with actual end-user experience.
That said, this page has a lot of screens and "stories" based on the different users of the tool, and the tool seems professional and decent:
http://www.targetprocess.com/Product/agile_usage_patterns.aspx
Then there is Microsoft's, which is really and extention to Visual Studio's Team System.  If you're not using that development platform, this won't be helpful:

Thanks for reply. Targetprocess looks professional and decent. Does anyone has any end-user experience with it? Also, it seems little expensive than the tool we are using. x-planner is freeware and basecamp is $49 per month for unlimited users where as target process is $25 per month per user.

As cdbosh mentioned for Microsoft technology VSTS has built-in reporting that can be turned into CIO readable format. If you are having a portfolio of products in development and using MS Project Server, you are opt for the same (I have installed it once in a Software Factory with a project health index that is presented on a screen at the entrance of the department, cool feature ...)
For product lines working with IBM Rational tools, a good option would be IBM Rational Dashboard or ProjectConsole.

And if you are working with multiple technologies and a big enterprise, consider e.g. Artemis.

Point with all these tools to make it workable is that it must be able to grab the core information from the project or projects. If you can provide us with some information about your tool environment and/or technology I am sure we can help you on the best (or less worst) option for your CxO's.
