Chief Executive Officer
The Lynx Board of Directors unanimously elected Franklin L. Donahoe as Chief Executive Officer as of June 1, 2021. Franklin has over 30 years of experience in data, information, cyber security, business and technology risk management and military service in the United States Marine Corps. Franklin will lead the next phase of Lynx’s evolution.
As a founding member of the Lynx Board of Directors, Franklin has been advising Lynx’s global service delivery business with an absolute commitment to excellence. While Franklin will bring new ideas and perspectives as CEO, he fully embraces the strategic and secure foundation of the Lynx value creation playbook to continue the great track record of delivering differentiated value for our shareholders.
Donahoe has consulted and had leadership and executive responsibilities in global multi-national companies such as Deloitte, Costco, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, and T-Mobile, and helped these companies develop and execute strategy, and improve operations and performance. Through his career, he discovered his passion assisting leaders in developing solutions to address difficult risk and business challenges by thinking broader and connecting business needs with the use of technology and addressing the risks associated with both. He also enjoys serving on boards and commissions for For-Profit, Non-Profit and State Government. These board, commissioner and advisor roles have given him the ability to help leaders see beyond the immediate and anticipate risks. He was also the Commissioner for Washington State African Affairs.
