In this episode Frank Ricciardi shares his entrepreneurial journey, his experiences with burnout, and the story behind Maavee's name. He discusses the importance of personalized wellness, the convergence of healthcare and wellness, and the role of Maavee in curating the best wellness products and services. Frank also highlights the significance of employers offering personalized well-being services to their employees.
Frank is currently the founder and CEO of Maavee, a consumer-led "population wellness" SaaS platform that connects humans to their highly personal, fluid and lifelong journeys.
Frank began his career with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) where he focused on product lifecycle management and salesforce effectiveness in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries for companies such as Astra-Merck, AstraZeneca and Amgen.
In 1999, Frank “caught the Internet wave” and worked for several technology companies at the forefront of their respective fields including more.com and DigitalThink. From 2005 to 2018, he served on the executive team at Cornerstone OnDemand, one of the most successful cloud software companies in the world. During his tenure, he architected the company’s client retention and growth capabilities including its innovative client success model, launched and led its international businesses in Israel and nine countries in Asia-Pacific, and finally served as Chief Customer Officer. Over the 13 years that Frank called Cornerstone home, the company grew from $0.5 million to just shy of $500 million in annual revenue with a successful IPO in March 2011. After a short break from the corporate world to reset, Frank served as the Chief Business Officer for Thrive Global, founded by Arianna Huffington, where he led the pivot from a media and content company to a technology company.
Los Angeles is home; however Frank spends about half of his time outside of the U.S.A. being a global citizen. He has also lived in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Healdsburg, and Antibes.
