Catalis Names Scott Roza as Chief Executive Officer

Alpharetta, GA, November 7, 2022 – Catalis, a trusted technology partner for thousands of U.S. and Canadian government entities, announced today the appointment of Scott Roza as Chief Executive Officer. Roza succeeds John Kristel, who is moving from his role at Catalis to serve as a Senior Advisor to PSG.

Roza joins Catalis with more than 20 years of experience leading and operating software businesses. He most recently served as the President and Global Head of Customer Operations at TIBCO, a leader in enterprise data, where he was responsible for the company’s global sales, alliances, professional services, and customer excellence functions. He brings distinct expertise in SaaS and the fintech sector, having served in senior roles at Clearwater Analytics and Guidewire Software, and as the CEO of Skytap. Roza is a distinguished marine engineering graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and spent five years as a submarine officer in the U.S. Navy. Roza has been a Senior Advisor to TPG since 2019.

“Catalis is enabling more than 7,000 government organizations across the country to meet the expectations of today’s consumer,” said Roza. “I’m excited to join the company at such a pivotal time in its history as we look to expand our solutions and impact as one of the only platforms of scale that delivers and optimizes government operations through one, integrated suite. I look forward to working with the talented Catalis team and our partners at PSG and TPG to implement a strategy of accelerated growth.”

“The team at Catalis has successfully built a leading solution and platform that’s enabling the government sector to operate more effectively and efficiently for the benefit of constituents,” said Tullio Purtill, Principal at PSG. “Now, as the company looks to scale its platform, we believe Scott brings the right domain expertise and operating experience to take the company to the next level. We are grateful for John’s vision, leadership, and unwavering dedication over the past four years and know he will continue to be a great resource to the company going forward.”

Formerly Government Brands, Catalis rebranded in August of 2022 as a tribute to the company’s mission to serve as a catalyst for creating a modern, digital government. The rebrand follows the company’s 2021 recapitalization by PSG and TPG and represents Catalis’ continued growth and evolution as a premier software and digital payments provider purpose- built for the space.

“It’s been a privilege to lead Catalis since its early days and partner with the team on our journey to build the leading provider of advanced software solutions for governments across North America,” said Kristel. “Catalis has the potential to transform the way we engage with the public sector, and I look forward to supporting the company’s next chapter under Scott’s leadership.”
