She has helped the company thrive in that COVID-assisted boom, that created emotive brand recognition, including keeping a special culture alive and well by creating and also re-inventing programs including leadership training, virtual interviewing, onboarding, employee wellness and internal communications.
Prior to Zoom, Lynne held leadership roles in a variety of industries (CP, banking, telecom, publishing, energy) in multiple geographies.
