Olivia Ruello is moved and motivated by remarkable women.
She started her career in industrial relations, before moving into senior roles in the HR and recruitment industries. At just 24 years old, Olivia was appointed General Manager of a well-respected recruitment firm and went to lead her team to win multiple recruitment agency of the year awards, largely thanks to her ability of understanding customers and commitment to creating a human way of doing business.
Olivia has been the CEO of Business Chicks Australia since January 2016.
While the title is a new one for Olivia, the setting is not. Olivia led the Partnerships and Brand team at Business Chicks for four years from 2009, before moving to the Commonwealth Bank, where she drove a unique leadership and culture agenda for the corporate banking division.
She describes the return to Business Chicks as ‘like coming home’.
Olivia has a deep passion for women stepping into and realising their own power and potential, and as the CEO of Business Chicks Australia, she wants to help women harness their strengths as females – empathy, kindness, collaboration and connection – to create a generation of leaders who care.
