Cronan’s passion is in applying data and predictive models to solve problems to help people to make better decisions. His vision is a world where everyone makes better decisions, based on real data and expert models.
Prior to founding Creme Global in 2005, Cronan worked in financial risk analysis and derivative option price modelling with Merrill Lynch Capital Markets Bank. Cronan then moved to Trinity College Dublin where he adapted the same predictive modelling methods to the food safety sector while developing the science and technology that underpins Creme Global.
Cronan has received the Trinity College Innovation Award (2010) in recognition for the success of Creme Global. Creme Global has been awarded the Deloitte Irish Technology Fast 50 award in every of the last seven years (2010-2016) and the Deloitte Technology EMEA Fast 500 award twice (2011, 2012).
Cronan holds a BSc in Physics from University College Dublin (UCD), an MSc in High Performance Computing from Trinity College Dublin (TCD), a post graduate diploma in International Sales from the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and a certificate of completion from the CEO Accelerated Growth Programme in the Judge Business School in Cambridge University.
It was during his time studying Physics in UCD that Cronan realised that computing and developing predictive models would be his life’s work.
In his spare time Cronan enjoys playing tennis, building things and spending time with his family. Cronan lives with his wife and son in Glasnevin in Dublin.
