Chief Executive, Balcroft
Richard Cronin founded Balcroft, an operational consulting firm, three years ago by bringing together a group of highly respected and principled C-suite executives from FTSE type firms. His vision was to grow a company whose values underpin everything it does and to promote gender equality and empower women. To ensure delivery, any benefits Balcroft signs up to deliver are guaranteed, it is passionate about transferring skills to achieve sustainability and employees don’t operate out of an office, despite working globally, so it doesn’t pass unnecessary overheads on to its clients and creates a much better work/life balance for colleagues.
Having grown up with three sisters and witnessing the struggles they have faced to progress in many well-known, but sexist environments, Richard has constantly battled to ensure women have the same rights and opportunities as men.
Richard is also a Trustee for Dingley Family and Specialist Early Years Centres.
We are thrilled to welcome Richard onto our Candidate Selection Panel for the first time.
