Founder Biographies

(For hi-res founder images, please see the Imagery section).

Adam Bird

One line bio

adam-bird-head-400Technical founder and problem solver with track record of success. Expert post rationaliser.

Short bio

Adam is Founder and CEO of Cronofy, the unified calendar API. He's a highly technical and experienced technology entrepreneur with a passion for continuous improvement that pervades every aspect of his life. A lover of cycling and craft beer but he never really got on with having a beard for that hipster hat-trick.

Full Bio

Adam is Founder and CEO of Cronofy, the unified calendar API. He's a highly technical and experienced technology entrepreneur with a passion for continuous improvement that pervades every aspect of his life. As comfortable talking about systems design as he is about sales strategy he provides leadership to a team of exceptional people.

He achieved entrepreneurial success with the co-founding and growth of Esendex the international text messaging service provider. After growing the business into an operation that spanned multiple countries servicing thousands of business customers, he exited when it was sold to Darwin Private Equity in 2013.

He is a keen cyclist, with a brief foray into competition that was notable only for its lack of success and injuries sustained. Adam is an advocate and supporter of the Nottingham Technology scene; works with the City Council on initiatives to drive business activity; and is a governor at his local secondary school with specific responsbility for Achievement & Standards.

Full Bio

Garry is Cronofy's CTO, a software developer that's allergic to mediocrity. With a varied history including being lead developer at Zopa, the world's oldest and Europe's largest peer-to-peer lending service, he's tackled many challenges that involve scale, highly sensitive data, and where a high degree of accuracy and high level of availability is paramount.

Garry thrives when challenged and so jumped at the chance to join Adam at Cronofy as CTO and take on the task of providing the API for the world's time.

Testimonials

Customer quotes

"The Cronofy API allowed us to add calendar sync support to our platform in a fraction of the time it would have taken to build support for separate protocols."

- Dom Finn, CTO, North 51

- Leah Hutcheon, Founder & CEO, Appointedd

"Thanks to Cronofy we saved on implementation costs as the complexity was greatly reduced, and we now support more systems than we would have done otherwise. It was very simple to set up an account with Cronofy and it worked immediately."
