Sales and operations leader, Rich Products Corporation

Lynch has led Rich's sales and operations process covering the United States and Canada since January 2012. Under Lynch's guidance, the company has met or exceeded key business objectives and undertook an evaluation of monthly projects for product, demand, supply and financials, all while allocating resources for customer needs.

Lynch's leadership of this cross-divisional, cross-functional initiative led to Rich's achieving the Oliver Wight "Class A" Advanced certification, an award received by very few companies. This success has led to an expansion of sales and operations planning initiatives into the company's international markets. Lynch has also started a leadership and mentoring program for associates to cultivate talent and inspire others.
