Dear Customers,

We are writing to let you know that Solera Board Member and Vista Operating Principal Darko Dejanovic has been named Solera’s Interim CEO, taking over for Jeff Tarr who informed us he will be stepping down. We are grateful for Jeff’s contributions and focus on customers and growth, and we wish him the best.

Darko has significant experience leading enterprise software companies through periods of transition and growth. As a Solera Board Member, he is deeply familiar with Solera and the team and will be able to transition quickly and smoothly into the Interim CEO role. Over the past five months, Darko worked side-by-side with the Solera leadership team on a comprehensive assessment of the organization, and he is prepared to lead the company forward.

Darko is an Operating Principal and serves as President of Vista Intelligence Group at Vista Equity Partners. In addition to Solera, he sits on the boards of Wrike, 7Park Data, AGDATA, Social Solutions, Upserve and Stats Perform. Darko will be focused on leading the company, as we transition to our next phase of continued growth.

This transition will not affect our day-to-day operations or our commitment to you. You should continue to reach out to your normal customer representatives as you always have. Given Darko’s long-term involvement in Solera, we expect this transition to be seamless, and you should not see any change in your experience as a Solera customer.

Vista Equity Partners and the Board of Directors remain deeply committed to Solera and our customers, and we are excited about the company’s prospects for continued innovation and development of solutions that create real value for you and your business. We appreciate your trust and commitment to us, and we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.
