Karie Shearer Craig, co-founder and chief operating officer of WebpageFX, Inc., has been a determined computer scientist —in a field dominated by men — since she was 15, when she was given a PC by her uncle who worked for IBM. Craig proceeded to major in computer science at Shippensburg University and graduated at the top of her computer science class, as the only female, with a 3.95 GPA and dual degrees in computer science and mathematics.
With Craig at the operational helm, WebpageFX is experiencing 35 percent growth in 2013 and projects to double its workforce and revenue in the next four years. She has been instrumental in WebpageFX's recognition as Technology Company of the Year by the Technology Council of PA in 2013, Business of the Year and one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies by the Central Penn Business Journal in 2012 and placing on the Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest Growing Companies in 2012. Craig herself was also named Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2010 Harrisburg Chamber Business Awards.
