Lynda Partner is a self-professed data addict who understands how transformational data can be for organizations. In her role as Vice President of Products & Offerings, Lynda designs service offerings that harness the power of data, analytics, and cloud to turn companies into competitive winners.
Lynda’s love affair with data started 20 years ago when she founded a highly successful SaaS company that took advantage of data to increase product usage and generate revenue. Lynda is still making data-informed decisions every day to achieve faster and better results with measurable outcomes. Her belief in the power of data led her to be the driving force in adding an analytics practice to Pythian’s database focus.
Lynda works with companies around the world and across industries to turn data into insights, predictions, and products.
She is the co-author of Designing Cloud Data Platforms and was named to the Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada list in 2014 by the Executive Women’s Network.
Lynda holds a bachelor of commerce from the University of Ottawa and loves to be active. From coaching girls hockey to cycling 25 kilometres to and from work each day, she’s always in motion. Her downtime is spent at her island cottage, where she kayaks while plotting new ways to use data. Only for good, of course.
