VANCOUVER, BC., October 19, 2021 – Syniad Innovations Inc (“Syniad”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Martin Cronin as Executive Chairman. Mr. Cronin brings a wealth of experience to Syniad and his work, a full-time position, marks a significant milestone in the development of the Board.
Before taking up his role with Syniad, Mr. Cronin spent over 20 years in international diplomacy with the British Government with appointments across the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, and North America, spanning counterterrorism, conflict resolution, and inward trade investment. Following a posting as Consul-General to Western Canada, Martin settled in British Columbia and joined the private sector, serving as CEO and Director of several private and public companies in the public safety and defence sectors, including Patriot One Technologies (TSX: PAT). He has also served as Honorary Colonel of a Canadian Army Reserve Regiment and Regional Director of the Canadian Forces Liaison Council.
John Davies, Syniad’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “It is with the utmost pleasure that we welcome Martin to the Board. He brings excellent senior leadership skills to the table and, thanks to his time at Patriot, knows exactly what it takes to convert university research into a publicly listed company. He’s incredibly experienced at building patient, high-integrity relationships with government and major corporations alike. We can look forward to building Syniad under his chairmanship with great anticipation.”
Martin Cronin added, “I’ve known Syniad for nearly five years and have had a long opportunity to understand what the Company is building. It’s one of the most exciting businesses that I’ve ever encountered: a management team with an exceptional level of drive, matched into a genuinely innovative business model, and the ability to deliver game-changing value.”
