Steve has been creating compelling and memorable advertising for over 30 years for national brands such as Amica Insurance, Benihana, Konica Minolta, MasterCard and Tractor Supply Company, as well as local and regional icons like the Connecticut Lottery, Bertucci’s Restaurants and Northeast Utilities.
As one of the owners of Cronin and Company, Steve has helped lead the agency to its fifth straight ranking as Connecticut’s Top Ad Agency and Top 10 in New England. As Cronin’s Chief Creative Officer, it’s Steve’s responsibility to assure the agency’s work gets noticed, gets remembered and gets results. He does it by forging an emotional connection with the target audience through messages that touch the heart, the soul – and sometimes, the funny bone.
Steve has made numerous appearances on ESPN, giving his expert commentary on Super Bowl ads. He’s also a frequent guest on NBC-TV 30 and on Connecticut’s leading radio station, WTIC-AM. Steve lives with his wife and two children in Avon, Connecticut. His mother still wonders why his name isn’t seen after his commercials, like it would be if he wrote "something important", like a movie or a TV show.
