CEO and Co-Founder
Samir Bodas, CEO and Co-founder of Icertis, has a 20-year track record of leading fast-growing, category-defining companies. Samir and his team have established Icertis as the undisputed leader in the $20 billion contract lifecycle management (CLM) category, and in 2019 it became the first CLM company valued at over $1 billion. Samir’s leadership is guided by Icertis’ FORTE values—Fairness, Openness, Respect, Teamwork, and Execution—and he deeply believes in the company’s tireless mission to be the contract intelligence platform of the world; how it gets there is just as important as the destination. Before co-founding Icertis, Samir held multiple leadership roles at Microsoft and served as CEO of two IT services firms, Disha Technology and Aztecsoft, overseeing rapid growth followed by successful exits. Samir is a golf addict, to the annoyance of his family. When not playing golf, he reads books about golf. And when not reading about golf, he contributes to the local community as a board member of the Seattle chapters of both of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) and Pratham USA.
