NEW YORK, April. 4, 2023  — Chronograph, provider of the world’s leading portfolio monitoring solutions for private equity, today announced several key hires. 

Marc Allen joins Chronograph from CEPRES as Head of Marketing, Natalie Singer joins from EquityZen as Partnerships Manager, Abbas Khan joins from Cherre as Product Owner for Data Extraction, and Daniel Gruppo joins from Lionpoint Group as a Client Development Manager. Additionally, Chronograph announced that Ryan Crowell, who joined last year from Allvue as Product Manager, will oversee general partner solutions. All will help scale Chronograph globally.

Chronograph Co-Founder & CEO Charlie Tafoya remarked, “We founded Chronograph to advance and empower the private capital industry with modern cloud-based technology. Adding Marc, Natalie, Abbas, Ryan, Daniel, and our other new joiners brings us one step closer to achieving that goal.” 

Marc Allen commented, “I am delighted to join Chronograph. The gap between private equity leader and laggard widens daily, and Chronograph is uniquely positioned to help GPs and LPs leapfrog legacy systems to narrow that gap.”

Ryan Crowell noted, “Chronograph has a market-leading solution built on industry-leading cloud architecture. It’s been an incredible opportunity to join Chronograph and help general partners unlock unique value through our next-generation suite of data collection, analysis, and reporting tools.” 

Natalie Singer added, “The private capital industry is increasingly connected. I am thrilled to join the Chronograph team to help bring Chronograph’s impact to the broader private capital marketplace.” 

The hires add to a significant pace of new hiring for Chronograph over the previous six months. In October 2022, Chronograph announced a Series X led by Summit Partners. Since then, Chronograph has grown headcount by 36% across all functions. In February, Chronograph expanded globally and opened an office in London. Additionally, Chronograph welcomed more of the leading asset owners, institutional investors, and fund managers to its platform. Chronograph coverage now represents more than 153,000 PE-backed companies and nearly $20 trillion in assets under management.
