Neon One, Nonprofit Technology Leader, Announces New Executive Leadership
Recently surpassing $14 billion raised across the platform, Neon One, a technology company serving social good organizations, announced Steve Kriter as its new CEO. Kriter has served as the company's Executive Chairman of the Board since July 2020.
Kriter succeeds Michael Farb, who served as CEO for nearly three years. In his time as CEO, Farb led the company through significant organic growth and the successful acquisitions of NeonCRM, Rallybound, Arts People and CiviCore, further expanding its technology ecosystem for nonprofits. In addition, he led the company through the launch of a new brand and a unified product suite, and helped the company reach new milestones of over $14 billion raised on the platform across 35,000 nonprofit organizations.
"I'm extremely proud of the accomplishments of the Neon One team and think it's a great time to bring in new leadership for the next phase of growth," said Farb. "Steve and the amazing leadership team have the right mix of passion, purpose, and experience." Farb will continue to assist the organization in an advisory capacity into the future.
Kriter is a seasoned executive who brings a track record of success leading companies through high growth phases. Prior to joining Neon One, Kriter was CEO at ACS Technologies, a leading provider of church management software and service solutions, and held senior roles at ADP and Solera for nearly 20 years. His extensive senior leadership experience at maturing technology companies gives him the operational expertise and competencies needed to lead Neon One into the future.
"As a mission-driven leader, I'm thrilled to be taking on the role of CEO at this exact point in Neon One's growth," said Kriter. "We have incredible customers, talented employees, an inclusive culture, and a robust suite of products all designed to help nonprofits. I look forward to helping guide the Neon One team with specific strategic shifts and critical investment decisions that will enable us to support more nonprofits to achieve their mission."
