Lots of different ways I'm sure, but I would create a vbs (or batch file etc.) with the command to run the exe, then put the vbs in the deployment tool, and set it to run 'after installation'.

Is the EXE installed by the package? If so, WPS has the action 'Execute EXE from installed files' which should be placed in the Execute Immediate sequence after the InstallFinalize action.
