Frank Cuiuli

Frank is 8Squad’s CEO and has over 20 years enterprise leadership experience and founded his first Salesforce Consultancy in 2009. This was acquired by BlueWolf, which he grew to be one of Australia’s most successful Salesforce partners. Following that, he founded startup PIVOTme, which focused on specialised rehabilitation services where he excelled as a therapist for over four years, dealing with high-end Brain Injury and PTSD cases. This hybrid experience that Frank has nurtured now perfectly culminates in fostering individual and personal resilience and growth within the squads and beyond. He knows first-hand how digital transformation and change can cause disruption and even anxiety within any organisation and that’s why 8Squad highly values personal accountability, accountability to each other and most importantly to our clients. Frank leads his squad members to work smart and hard to make sure our clients’ experiences are as smooth and positive as it can be.
