Mark Julien, Kronos chief administrative officer, brings extensive experience to his role overseeing all aspects of the company’s financial, information technology, legal, and procurement operations. Julien’s passion for operational efficiency, financial transparency, and results has helped propel Kronos to new levels of success as the global leader in workforce management solutions in the cloud.
In leading the company’s global financial, information technology, legal, and procurement operations, Julien is focused on coordinating the overall support of Kronos operations and ensuring that financial and operational goals and objectives are met. In addition, Kronos has conducted more than 60 acquisitions since Julien joined the company – including more than a dozen during his tenure as chief financial officer – for which he was responsible for financial analysis and integration into Kronos operations.
Kronos was publicly held and traded on Nasdaq from 1992 to 2007, with an incredible track record of revenue growth and profitability achieved by very few other publicly traded software companies. In 2007, Julien played a key role in negotiating the sale of Kronos to private-equity firm Hellman & Friedman for $1.8 billion, and subsequently in executing various modifications to the company’s capital structure.
Earlier in his career, Julien was a certified public accountant (CPA) at Ernst & Young.
Julien earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Notre Dame and has participated in a series of executive education programs, including the AEA/Stanford Executive Institute at Stanford University.
