Meet Our Super Team

KRATEO.AI is a team of passionate individuals who understand the frustration of failed marketing efforts due to inaccurate data and are committed to solving the industry-wide issue of first-party data and personalization. Check out our Blogs to learn more about the world of data.

CLAY SHARMAN

CEO & HEAD CREATIVE DUDE

Clay is a 20+ year business leader and team builder who drives the innovation behind Krateo.ai. He brings nearly two decades of experience developing technology solutions for capture and proposal development teams in the Federal sector. Before Krateo.ai, he spent nearly a decade selling AI and ML-based solutions into the DoD (Air Force, Navy), national security agencies and commercial  markets, with a focus on using foundational technology to bridge the gaps between capabilities and customer needs. 

 

Clay doesn't like to brag, but he is a published author and filmmaker, having produced an independent film at Paramount Studios in 2012 (it was a hit in Turkey and Thailand!). He also plays drums and provides vocals for a Virginia-based pop rock band. 

DANA SHARMAN

CHIEF BRAND BAD@SS

Dana is proven sales executive and team leader with over 20 years of distinguished accomplishments in sales strategy, business development, customer experience, sales productivity and organizational effectiveness. She is an entrepreneur at heart, having recruited, trained, motivated, and led several thousand sales, CSRs and brand representatives for two highly successful self-made sales organizations. 

 

In her spare time, Dana is an avid traveler, has been around the world, loves seeing new lands, and is a self-described nemophilist (look it up, it's not as dirty as it sounds!).

RON HYMAN

HEAD OF SALES & RESIDENT RAINMAKER

As an entrepreneur, patent owner, and sales leader with over 25 years of experience, Ron's sales journey has been marked by innovation, resilience, and a relentless drive for success. From founding startups to scaling enterprises, Ron has honed skills in strategic planning, market analysis, and business development to drive sustainable growth and create lasting impact.


In his spare time, you can find Ron on an alligator-owned golf course, or even possibly riding a camel and dune bashing in Dubai (true story!).

DOUG SMITH

PLATFORM PRODUCT MAESTRO

Doug brings over 25 years as an architect and builder of teams that deliver complex, enterprise-driven products with an elegant, streamlined design and utility. He is a BIG PICTURE thinker and change agent with over a decade of experience leading IBM’s Global Demand Generation modeling and analysis team. Doug is passionate about building  enterprise solutions that leverage AI, cognitive computing and data science. 

In Doug's spare time (he isn't allowed much), he can be found whipping up a world-class jambalaya, wood-fired pizza or going to the theater to watch his beautiful wife Sam perform on stage.
