Commercial real estate CRM Apto has hired Angela Tucci as chief executive officer. Tanner McGraw, Apto’s founder and former CEO, will continue as chairman of the board and will take on a new role as the company’s chief strategy officer.

Tucci was most recently at CA Technologies, where she served as general manager of the Agile Management business unit. She was one of the pioneers of the CRM industry in the early 1990s, and brings decades of experience as a proven leader in public and private software companies spanning a wide variety of industries.

Prior to CA Technologies, Tucci held executive positions at Rally Software, Symantec, and NEON. A veteran start-up entrepreneur, she also founded two venture-backed technology companies with successful exits. She is a trustee for the Anita Borg Institute, a non-profit organization focused on the advancement of women in computing and technology.

“We’re very excited for Angela to bring her experience scaling software companies to Apto,” McGraw said in a statement. “She brings a lot of unique skills and insights that will help us accelerate innovation and implement processes to achieve the ambitious goals we’ve had in our sights since our founding.”

In his new role as CSO, McGraw will be responsible for Apto’s long-term strategy and vision. “I’m looking forward to refocusing my attention on how to best serve brokers’ needs both now and in the future.”

Tucci joins Apto during a period of record growth. Apto’s three-year growth rate places it #30 among software companies in Inc. magazine’s recently released 2017 Inc. 500 rankings. Recently the company launched a new mobile app, a redesigned user interface, and integrations with other software partners.

“This company has the potential to completely transform how brokers capture new business and work their deals,” said Tucci. “I’m thrilled to join Apto during such an exciting and pivotal time for the business and the industry.”
