Media Release Ireland Cronin Partners

3 April, 2024 – AltoPartners has named its first-ever partner firm in Ireland. After an exhaustive search, Dublin-based Cronin Partners International Search joined the global partnership on 1 April 2024. Founded by Claire Cronin in 2003, Cronin Partners has an impressive track record based on its work among the Irish diaspora, as well as serving local and international businesses operating in Ireland and globally.

“Ireland is a strategic location that has become even more important post-Brexit, as the English-speaking gateway to Europe with its well-established financial centre that plays host to some of the world’s leading multinationals. We are very pleased to welcome a strong and credible partner in Ireland to boost our strong European presence, and in Cronin Partners, we have found the perfect culture fit,” said Sonal Agrawal, the Global Chair for AltoPartners.

With the addition of Cronin Partners, AltoPartners expands its reach to 61 offices in 37 countries across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.

According to Agrawal: “The strength of our global partnership is down to the high calibre of our local member firms. Our partners are selected with great care to ensure that we maintain the high standards of integrity, quality, and authenticity that clients expect when contracting with a member of AltoPartners. In Claire and her partners, Catherine O’Sullivan and Conor Jones, we have found exactly the right mix of deep local roots, entrepreneurial flair, and a passion for excellence that is the hallmark of our global partnership.”

Said Claire Cronin, Founder and Managing Partner of Cronin Partners International Search: “We are delighted to join forces with AltoPartners, uniting our expertise to deliver outstanding executive search solutions worldwide. Our Irish origins and deep reach into the Irish diaspora, combined with AltoPartners international footprint, will strengthen our client offering, enhancing our ability to deliver in an increasingly interconnected business landscape.”
