Olivia Ruello kicked off her career in industrial relations before moving to senior leadership roles within the HR and recruitment industry where she built a reputation for driving transformative cultural change in organisations and delivering strong performance.

She then joined Business Chicks team full-time in 2009 in the capacity of Director-Partnerships and Brand. In the role, she develops and manages the corporate partnership program before moving to the finance sector driving a unique leadership and culture agenda for the mid-market business-banking segment at Commonwealth Bank.

Like a boomerang, she is now back home at Business Chicks Australia as a CEO focusing on building the foundations that will position Business Chicks for sustainable growth outcomes here and overseas.
