SAN DIEGO, CA – 19 NOVEMBER 2019 – Lynx Technology today announced that the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) recently recognized its CEO John Driver as an NACD Governance Fellow. NACD Fellows, who earn NACD Fellowship—The Gold Standard Director Credential®— stand within the highest echelon of those committed to excellence in the boardroom.
As the highest standard of credentialing for directors and governance professionals, NACD Fellowship is a comprehensive and continuous program of study that empowers Fellows with the latest insights, intelligence, and leading boardroom practices—year after year.
“I am honored to join the distinguished and diverse group of individuals who make up the NACD Fellow community and who are committed to advancing the highest standards of boardroom excellence,” said Lynx Technology CEO John Driver. “The resources, insights, and connections I’ve made through NACD Fellowship will be key assets to the companies I serve, as well as to my professional growth as a director.”
Driver is well known in the industry as a business strategist and change agent with broad and diversified experience in large global, mid-market, and early stage software companies. As the current CEO of Lynx Technology, a smart home IoT and digital media technology firm, he has grown the company organically and through several strategic business acquisitions, including assets of PacketVideo and media server technology Twonky. An active member of the community, giving back is a top priority for Driver. He is proud to hold several roles including Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Fleet Science Center in San Diego and President of the Stanford Multicultural Alumni Club of San Diego and is a recipient of the Stanford Governor’s Award for exemplary and long-standing volunteer service to Stanford University.
“We are proud to announce that John Driver has joined NACD’s credentialed directors and has taken the next step in the pursuit of boardroom excellence,” said Peter Gleason, CEO of NACD. “Our fellows help advance the highest standards for those who serve in the boardroom, strengthening our businesses, and driving director professionalism. The impact of this program is unmatched and they should be commended for their ongoing commitment to their own professional development.”
Representing hundreds of today’s largest and most-diverse corporations in the world, NACD Fellows serve on boards of NASDAQ OMX- and NYSE-listed companies such as Baker Hughes Inc., Citigroup Inc., DuPont, Foot Locker Inc., IBM, Lockheed Martin Corp., Microsoft Corp., Nordstrom Inc., Pinnacle Entertainment, SpartanNash Co., UnitedHealth Group Inc., and more.
