Lone Wolf Technologies Appoints Tom Benson as New Chief Sales Officer

Tom Benson to lead Lone Wolf’s major growth initiative in Canada and the U.S.

Lone Wolf Technologies Inc. (“Lone Wolf”), the North American leader in residential real estate software, has announced the appointment of Tom Benson as Chief Sales Officer (CSO). This hiring comes at a pivotal time for Lone Wolf, as the company looks to expand its presence in real estate brokerages across North America.

Benson joins Lone Wolf with a wealth of sales and operational experience, coming from technology companies such as Intuit and Dell.

While at Dell, Benson launched the Dell Oklahoma City campus and was part of the leadership team that supported the growth of 200 team members to 2000. He also led teams whose annual revenues ranged as high as $600 million. At Lone Wolf, Benson will spearhead a dynamic Sales division focused on expanding the company’s footprint in the US market. Though 54% of the Real Trends 500 top U.S. brokerages already use Lone Wolf software, the opportunity for growth remains vast, especially among new and developing brokerages.

“Tom has a sterling track record of developing talent and putting his clients first,” said Patrick Arkeveld, CEO of Lone Wolf. “I’m confident that he will lead our Sales team to new heights in 2018 and beyond, and that real estate brokerages will benefit greatly from his focus on the client experience.”

Benson’s appointment comes on the heels of Lone Wolf’s Instanet Solutions acquisition, in which the company added TransactionDesk—the real estate industry’s most robust transaction management solution—to its suite of software.

“With such a strong Sales team and product line in place, Lone Wolf already has what it needs to achieve exceptional growth in the marketplace,” said Tom Benson, CSO of Lone Wolf. “I’m thrilled to lead the way forward for our team, as we continue to deliver the best real estate technology and embark upon new and exciting Sales opportunities across the continent.”
