Management Team

Frank Zamani Founder, President and CEO

Overcoming extraordinary life circumstances, Frank became a refugee after fleeing Iran to escape religious persecution for his belief in the Bahá’í Faith. He received asylum from the United States and began a new life. Later, he earned a BS in Computer Science from California State University, Chico — where he is recognized as a distinguished alumnus — and co-founded Autoweb.com, which made a successful initial public offering in 1999.

A pioneer of cloud computing, Frank founded Caspio in 2000 based on the simple idea of enabling non-technical business professionals to build online database applications quickly and without coding. Now serving thousands of customers in over 100 countries, Frank is focused on Caspio’s next phase of growth. He remains passionate in his vision and dedicated to the satisfaction and success of every single customer.
