Cleo, a Leading Ecosystem Integration Software Company, Welcomes Sameer Katiyar as Chief Financial Officer

San Francisco, CA — June 28, 2023 Renovata & Company is pleased to announce the placement of Sameer Katiyar as chief financial officer of Cleo, a leading ecosystem integration software company that helps customers discover and drive value through moving and integrating B2B enterprise data.


“I joined Cleo because I see a well-run business poised for accelerating long-term growth as it shapes and leads the rapidly evolving ecosystem integration software category,” Katiyar says. “I’m looking forward to working with all my new colleagues as well as Cleo’s 4,100+ customers, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders as we work to unlock Cleo’s full potential.”


Backed by H.I.G. Capital, Cleo gives customers strategic, “outside-in” visibility into the critical end-to-end business flows across their ecosystems of partners and customers, marketplaces, and internal cloud and on-premise applications. This enables companies to increase business agility, accelerate onboarding, modernize business processes, and capture new revenue streams by improving their digital ecosystems with robust application, B2B and data-integration technologies.


“Sameer brings more than 20 years of experience in the software and technology sectors to his new role,” says Jeff Yolen, Renovata & Company partner. “He has held CFO and other leadership positions overseeing financial planning and analysis (FP&A), treasury, corporate development, operations, and business transformation in public company and private-equity environments.”


Before joining Cleo, Katiyar was chief financial officer at SAI360, and prior to that he was chief financial officer of Infogix, Inc. At both companies, he drove successful growth initiatives leading to exits. He also held several strategic finance positions during a 15+ year career with Sabre Corporation—most recently as vice president, finance; and vice president, finance and general accounting, Sabre Asia Pacific.
