About Frank Shultz.
Frank Shultz founded Infinite Blue in 2012 with a distinctly different vision for enterprise business continuity and disaster recovery. At a time when BC/DR was a manual process designed to meet audit requirements, Frank envisioned something automated, integrated, predictive, and, in a crisis, actionable.
Before launching Infinite Blue, Frank held senior strategy and technology positions at Strohl Systems, a business continuity vendor, and GHR Systems, a lending automation software company. He is a frequent speaker on the enterprise risk and future of emergency management and a contributor to a variety of industry publications.
In his free time, Frank coaches incoming college students through Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and mentors entrepreneurs who are starting or scaling businesses through PACT’s Mentor Connect. A graduate of Syracuse University, Frank lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and two daughters.
