(ICONIQ has been a longtime partner of Snowflake.) As CEO of three highly successful Silicon Valley companies, Frank has shown time and again that the keys to accelerating performance are aligning your employees around what matters and then executing with urgency and relentless intensity. Committed to sharing the lessons he’s learned, Frank recently authored a new book, Amp It Up, outlining his unique and inspiring leadership philosophies.
