Katherine Kostereva is the CEO and Managing Partner of Creatio – a global software company providing a leading low-code platform for process management and CRM. For the past 20 years, Katherine has been helping organizations accelerate their customer-facing and operational processes through automation.
She had a vision of creating a world where any business idea could be automated in minutes. Just as smartphones enable anyone to become a photographer, she wanted to create a software that enabled anyone to become a developer. Thanks to her determination, excellent leadership skills, and entrepreneurial spirit, she grew Creatio into a global company with over 600 employees in six offices around the world. Creatio’s products empower any organization to become a low-code company.
Creatio is recognized by top analyst firms, including Gartner and Forrester. It’s been included into five Gartner Magic Quadrants and seven Forrester Waves, named a Leader in two Gartner Magic Quadrants — for Sales Force Automation and CRM Lead Management — in 2019 and 2020. It also has some of the highest customer satisfaction scores in the industry.
When entrepreneurs talk about going above and beyond for their ventures, they don’t often consider literally going above 13,000 feet in the sky. But this is what Katherine did. Back in October 2019, when it came time to rename her company from bpm’online to Creatio, Katherine’s leadership transcended what you would expect from a typical CEO; she jumped out of a plane in solidarity with 160+ of her team members, launching the new name in the sky.
Katherine Kostereva has been named Top 25 SaaS Influencers: Ones to Watch in 2021, Top 50 SaaS CEOs and Top 50 Women Leaders in SaaS in 2018-2020, the Winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category in 2020, the Executive Leader of the Year in the 7th Annual 2020 Customer Sales and Service World Awards, and more. In her spare time, Katherine enjoys reading, yoga and volunteering in the local Boston community.
