"It is incredibly humbling and exciting to have recruited such intelligent and experienced individuals," Cody Horchak, Zerv Founder and CEO, said. "Their belief in Zerv and passion for excellence inspires me daily, and we have already greatly benefited from having each of them on our team."
Kryvko, former Head of Engineering at Jones Lange LaSalle, Inc.

Kryvko holds deep experience in technical software development and testing, implementing testing automation principles that increased delivery speed by 20x while at JLLT. His previous experience also includes engineering and development roles with Corrigo, a JLL company, and Celenia Software (since acquired by Microsoft.)
Hilberman, CFO and interim COO for Zerv, was previously with JLLT as Vice President, Head of Revenue Finance, where he led a global finance team for a portfolio of technology companies having over $150 million in revenue and over 1,000 head count for a variety of business services, including SaaS, marketplaces, and technology consulting services, all with a prop-tech focus.
He has served as a full-service consulting CFO for dozens of start-ups including HelloSign, MobiledgeX and Corrigo, overseeing the delivery of financial statements, fundraising, revenue growth, contract negotiation, budgeting and forecasting, cash management and compliance. As a management consultant, he has participated in more than 20 CEO and C-level engagements for Fortune 500 companies, including Apple, Bechtel, Caltex, Chevron, Chase Manhattan, Cisco, First Nationwide, Fox, FMC, and Mobil Oil.

In addition to JLL, his background includes strategy, finance and operations leadership roles with SnappyGifts, JPMorgan, PwC Consulting, Deloitte Consulting and Gartner.
An experienced sales leader, Tooke will drive Zerv's commercial sales initiatives and recruit, develop and train a robust sales team as the company continues to expand.

Tooke brings a wealth of knowledge and experience around sales leadership, channel strategy, executing go-to-market, and industry thought leadership. Prior to ThoughtWire, he has been a top revenue producer at numerous SaaS companies, supporting various industries including real estate, insurance, casino gaming, and custom development.
