Partner and Co-founder of IGNITE Consulting
Director – Investor Relations practice
Linda has a reputation for building outstanding PR and IR programs and superior Wall Street and industry analyst relationships. She has extensive experience at every stage of the IPO process, including innovative “pre IPO” work.
With more than 20 years’ experience in investor relations, public relations, corporate development, and strategic and financial planning, Linda’s approach begins with gaining the “inside” knowledge and understanding of a client’s business. This insight enables her to be a strategic partner and advisor for the company’s communications, positioning and messaging.
Her value to clients includes honing a company’s strategic messaging and positioning; providing strategic counsel to executive management; developing proactive targeting and outreach programs; and dramatically increasing coverage.
Linda has focused on the technology industry for more than a decade, working with both public and private companies, including HP/LeftHand Networks, Fujifilm Data Storage, Fusion-io/NexGen Storage, Spectra Logic, McData, Alacritech, Intransa, and others. Previously she held leadership positions at Fortune 500 companies, including American Airlines, Tele-Communication, Inc. (TCI) and Corporate Express, Inc.
Linda enjoys staying active with her family while attending track tournaments and basketball games, and recently achieved her long-time goal of ascending Machu Picchu in Peru.
Linda received her MBA from the University of Texas at Austin and her Bachelor of Science in Finance from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
