Ordway Leadership

Sameer Gulati

CEO and Founder

About Sameer

After having launched several billion-dollar finance applications at some of the world’s leading ERP companies, Sameer founded Ordway in 2018 with the vision of disrupting the recurring billing and subscription management category. He wanted to free customers from the constraints that many of the incumbent, rigid financial systems suffered. Over the past few years, Sameer has led Ordway through a period of rapid growth including ranking #237 in the Inc 5000 list.  Despite the increased size and scale of Ordway, Sameer remains actively engaged with strategic customers, the product roadmap, and the agile development process.

Sameer brings over 20 years of experience in developing innovative financial products at some of the world’s leading technology companies. Prior to Ordway, Sameer was the Chief Product Officer at Spree Commerce before the acquisition by payments leader, First Data. At Zynga, he led the launch of Frontierville — one of the highest monetizing apps of all time. Earlier in his career Sameer worked at various tech startups, including roles as one of the first product managers during the early days of Zuora, Workday, and Intacct. An entrepreneur at heart, Sameer is also an active venture partner with NextGen Venture Partners and angel investor in startups such as UrbanStems, Social Tables, TrackMaven, and Advantia Health.
