CEO & Founder
Andrei Kaliev is the CEO and founder of DesignSpy. Currently based in Riga, he is a serial entrepreneur with desire to change the way the $609 billion global furniture market is run. Born in Latvia, Andrei comes from a family of entrepreneurs. So it should come as no surprise that, spurred on by a budding interest in interior design and huge market growth, he jumped headfirst into a number of projects, including the first Baker Furniture shop in the region. For Andrei, people are the most important asset of any business. For him, growth is accelerated through the knowledge and expertise of others. He is driven to find people with talents stronger than his own in certain fields that he can delegate to confidently. Andrei has gravitated towards tech in recent years as he sees it as the way that much of the complexity of the furniture market can be eliminated.
