Tom Simon Named Exceleras CEO

Tom Simon has been named CEO of Exceleras, moving up from his position as Chief Experience Officer, the company announced.

“My work as Chief Experience Officer has prepared me for this move, because everything we have developed was designed to give our clients the experience they desire. Too often, software fails to deliver positive experiences for users because it forces them to change the way they do business to operate within the constraints of a system,” Simon said.

“At Exceleras, we pride ourselves on an industry leading, flexible user experience that’s simple, intuitive and cost effective. As a result of our retooling efforts to upgrade our highly configurable architecture, add features and integrate new reporting and analytics capabilities, we were awarded two new contracts shortly after the launch of our new platform.”

Simon joined the company in 2020 and has since held a co-leadership position with Michael D. Romano. Romano will now serve as COO.

His past experience includes roles at Motorola, Baxter Healthcare, HP, and CNA Insurance. He also brings experience with Six Sigma and Lean to the position, which will help him to create a better user experience for the company’s clients.

“Tom and Michael have brought to Exceleras a fresh perspective and innovative ideas that have us thinking about our company and our industry like never before.” said Jonathan Kunkle, long-time board member of Exceleras. 

“As a result, the board has never been more confident and more excited about the future of our business.”

Exceleras provides real estate transaction management tools including a network of REO agents, appraisers, attorneys, and asset managers.
