SIIA’s TechChats provides a look into some of the most successful executives in our industry. Hear how many of them got to where they are today, what is shaping their businesses and the industry today, and special advice they would give to others trying to grow a successful company.
I recently sat down with Andrey Kudievskiy, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Distillery. Andrey is tech-minded, business-focused, and always coming up with new ideas to make his own business — and others' businesses — better. Andrey started his career in tech at the age of 19 while working on his degree in computer science. Within five years, he had established his first company and played a key role in creating a successful cloud synchronization startup that was sold to a Fortune 500 company. A serial entrepreneur and talented developer in his own right, he is focused on enabling other entrepreneurs to build businesses and continuing Distillery's expansion in the U.S. and international markets. He is a member of the Young Entrepreneurs Council, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, and ProVisors, and he serves as a mentor in Stubbs Alderton & Markiles’ Preccelerator® program.
Andrey holds a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Computer Science from Southern Federal University, as well as a certificate in Business Administration and Management from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. He is PMI and PMP certified.
