WAYNE, PA and DALLAS, November 30, 2021 –

Excellarate, the global technology services and solutions company known for its value in product engineering with domain expertise in finance, insurance, and healthcare, today announced Rob Howe as the company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Howe joins Excellarate with 25 years of experience in the financial sector in various roles, most recently as a financial consultant for several venture- and private-equity-backed portfolio companies.

Before his time as a consultant, Howe was Head of Corporate Strategy and Director of Financial Planning and Analysis at the fast-growing startup Liquidnet and served in multiple positions at GE, the premier management development company. He is a graduate of Hamilton College and attended the Harvard Business School’s program of Executive Education in Building New Businesses in Established Organizations.

Howe will be responsible for all elements of finance and accounting, business intelligence, and overall business operations. Excellarate, which launched from the merging of Synerzip and Prime earlier this year, will look to Howe for sound financial solutions and innovative strategic solutions as they work with a team of over 1,000 engineers across North America and India and over a hundred domain experts in healthcare, finance, insurance and more.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Rob Howe to Excellarate as CFO,” said Excellarate CEO Nick Sharma. “His deep and extensive experience in leading financial operations and business operations for enterprises at any stage will make an immediate impact as we continue a period of company growth. I’m confident Rob will provide strong leadership and is an excellent addition to the Excellarate team.”

This announcement follows Excellarate’s multiple executive appointments last month, including the addition of Chief Strategy Officer Vikram Bhalchandra, Senior Vice President of Healthcare Lori Meyers, and Senior Vice President of North America Delivery Jithendra Ganji. Excellarate’s leadership team comprises CEO Nick Sharma, President Hemant Elhence, CTO Vinayak Joglekar, CMO Sonu Agarwal, CPO Vijay Bommisetti, and CIO/SVP of Financial Services James Sloan.

“It’s such an exciting time to be joining the Excellarate team,” said Rob Howe. “Excellarate is a company with a strong business model, proud history, and innovative plans for the future. I look forward to continued success and jumping in during a time of unprecedented growth for the company.” 

“We are proud to see the rapid growth of Excellarate in the short amount of time since the merging of Synerzip and Prime Technologies,” said Joe Rondinelli, Principal at Frontenac. “The appointment of Rob Howe as Excellarate’s CFO will allow for even more success, and we look forward to new opportunities as the company progresses.”
