    Ron Argent

    Founder & CEO

    Our founder, Ron Argent, spent a career mastering the intricacies of the most powerful computing systems in the world. In roles spanning engineering, design, architecture and sales his customers were very large banks, governments, and other mega-corporations as well as smaller commercial organisations. After a successful career at IBM, he put his experience to work as a channel partner for his former employer. Again delighting both giant companies and smaller organisations. But something was stirring in him, and it couldn’t be ignored.

    Ron founded Cognition Foundry with the vision to bring enterprise class computing to startup entrepreneurs. Fueled by optimism, he sought to engage talented, skilled people with innovative ideas that improve the human condition. The result is a new concept; Cognition Foundry.
