Chris Crane is a co-founder of Scout and leads their product development. Chris was raised internationally and returned to the US to attend Case Western Reserve University where he studied Mechanical Engineering and spent his days working in the student machine shops helping students turn their ideas into physical products. Chris has worked in manufacturing—designing and improving machinery and processes to cut waste —and front-end web development. Chris hates watching people do unnecessary work and always looks for or builds solutions to make life easier. He is excited to build something new at Procure Labs that will simplify people’s lives and hopes to turn the procurement industry on its head. When not modernizing the procurement process, Chris can be found brewing beer with his three-year old and infant in tow.
