Seasoned Portland-area Executive Tom Malone Assumes Leadership Role in Trusted HR and Payroll Solutions Provider

Vista has chartered the Accero executive team with an aggressive plan for growth

Tom Malone, former CEO of Portland-based SRC Software, is the new CEO of Accero Software (formerly Cyborg Software), a leading HR and Payroll solutions provider with blue chip clients in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom. The company was formed in January of 2008 after Vista Equity Partners, a San Francisco-based private equity firm with over $2 billion in committed capital, acquired the Cyborg Software assets from Hewitt Associates and changed the company name to Accero Software.

Malone, a seasoned software industry executive who has spent the last 12 years of his career holding "C" level positions, was previously the CEO of another Vista Equity company, SRC Software, a budgeting and planning software company that enjoyed significant growth rates and profitability during his tenure. SRC was acquired by Business Objects in 2005, and Business Objects was acquired by SAP in 2007.

"I am delighted to be part of the Vista portfolio again. I am even prouder to be associated with a great product and with employees who have such a fine record of success and customer satisfaction," said Malone.

Prior to joining SRC Software, Malone served as CEO of a mid-sized telephone and internet services company with more than 1,300 employees. Earlier in his career, Malone was president of Cable & Wireless USA, a $1.6 billion multi-national telecommunications division.

"Vista has chartered the Accero executive team with an aggressive plan for growth," added Malone. "In order to help achieve this growth, we will be making significant investments in infrastructure and will be ramping up our R&D efforts. Our goal is to retain the status of the Accero/Cyborg product line as a leader in the marketplace."
