Our Leadership Team

Meet the Minds Driving Transformative Business Value for Our Customers.

Pneuron was founded with a single mission: deliver technology that enables organizations to generate business value faster and easier than anything that has come before.

Having been business executives ourselves, the Pneuron management team has first-hand experience of a long-standing frustration facing enterprises today – the inability to quickly address even straightforward business challenges because of the complexity inherent in traditional technology approaches.

Seeking a faster and more agile alternative to this all-to-common paradigm, Pneuron took a completely new approach to problem solving, resulting in its groundbreaking Distributed Platform – and our business-driven team is helping organizations all over the globe to leverage this technology for 50% faster value realization.
