Christopher Lynch Commencement Address to the Bentley University McCallum Graduate School of Business

Christopher Lynch, VP and General Manager of Vertica, an HP Company, delivered the commencement address to the Bentley University McCallum Graduate School of Business on Saturday, May 21st. Knowing Chris and appreciating the enthusiasm, passion, and commitment to all things he undertakes, I wouldn’t have missed the opportunity to watch the commencement. As is usual with Chris, this was not your typical commencement speech. I think the team at Bentley summed it up very nicely in the Bentley University recap of the day:

In an impassioned speech at the 36th annual commencement ceremony, Lynch recounted how early experiences shaped his choices. “I grew up modestly, but in a home full of love and so I was happy… therefore I never equated money with happiness. I never chased money; I chased love and connections to people. This continues to empower me to this day.”

I have had the pleasure to know and work with Chris for a number of years and can assure you everything he speaks about throughout this 15 minute address is how he approaches life – both personal and professional. Enjoy!

Vertica’s Ascent Continues

The last 9 months have been an amazing time at Vertica! We’ve experienced unprecedented customer growth, shipped two major releases of the Vertica Analytics Platform, and hired world class resources in every functional area.

Throughout all of these milestones, one constant has been a message our CEO, Chris Lynch, continually reinforces – the importance of listening to our customers and taking steps to make improvements based upon their feedback. One of the areas we’ve received feedback has been our public facing website – Based upon that feedback we are very excited to launch a new version of the site today focused on making information more accessible and supporting the growth and success of our customers and partners.

We will continue to improve the site and hope you’ll continue to provide feedback!
