Executive Vice President, Data & Analytics
Lynda Partner is a self-professed data addict who understands how transformational data can be for organizations. As EVP of Data and Analytics, Lynda focuses on Pythian's services that help customers harness the power of data and analytics and holistically manage their data estate. She is responsible for Solutions, Offerings, and Delivery, ensuring customers are deliriously happy with Pythian as a partner.
Lynda’s love affair with data started 20 years ago when she founded a highly successful SaaS company that used data to increase product usage and generate revenue. Lynda continues to make daily data-informed decisions to achieve faster and better results with measurable outcomes. Over her nine years at Pythian as VP of Marketing, Lynda was the driving force in creating an analytics practice at Pythian, and as VP of Offerings, Lynda and her team developed and implemented over 30 offerings, shifting from an hours model to an outcome-based set of offerings.
Lynda works with companies around the world and across industries to help companies optimize the value of their data - by modernizing their platforms in the Cloud for agility, by helping them use their data to make better decisions and improve customer experiences, and by managing and optimizing their data estate to scale cost-effectively.
