"Everyday at Platinum Bank I have the opportunity to make a difference the employees can feel, customers can experience and shareholders can recognize. My experience at KPMG, Wells Fargo and The Travelers has given me the essential skills required to make the difference."

Tom Cronin, 40, offers a mix of public accounting integrity with the real-world applications and compliance of corporate accounting. Overseeing the financials of multiple entities and billions in investments, Tom's hallmark is taking processes and efficiencies to the next level of excellence.

As Chief Financial Officer, Tom is well positioned to move Platinum Bank in directions that enhance the customer experience. He is exploring new products, technologies and processes that will build upon the bank's current success so that employee and customer interactions gain value.

On the leadership team, Tom oversees the financial health and regulatory compliance of the bank, identifying capitalization and growth opportunities with the proper timing and terms. He also maintains an active CPA license to stay abreast of financial accounting strategies and changes.
