“I have watched Dyn grow over the years and blossom into one of the premier companies in the state of New Hampshire” John Lynch, new Dyn board member.
Manchester, NH (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet Infrastructure as a Service, announced today that The Honorable John Lynch, former four-term New Hampshire Governor, has been added to its board.
“John is one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever met,” said Dyn CEO Jeremy Hitchcock. “He has held the ultimate leadership position and managed to keep a steady hand during difficult times. He will bring a balance and wisdom to our board.”
In January, Lynch left the New Hampshire Governor’s office, a seat he held for a record-setting four terms. During his administration, Lynch was often ranked among the most liked governors in the country. He successfully led the state through one of the biggest economic recessions in American history.
Before entering public life, Lynch was the CEO of Knoll Inc., a national furniture manufacturer, where he transformed the company previously losing $50 million a year, to making profits of nearly $240 million yearly. Prior to that, he was the Director of Admissions at Harvard Business School.
Most recently Lynch served as the inaugural Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth College for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Lynch earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1974, a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School, and a Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center.
“I have watched Dyn grow over the years and blossom into one of the premier companies in the state of New Hampshire,” Lynch said. “I’m very excited to be joining its board. I believe my experience in both the private and public sector will add a unique voice to Dyn’s talented Board of Directors.”
Lynch completes a board that already includes:
- Jeremy Hitchcock, Dyn CEO and co-founder
- Jason Calacanis, founder and CEO of Mahalo, co-founder of ThisWeekIn, co-founder and former CEO of Weblogs, Inc. (acq. by AOL) and a respected angel investor
