When Linda Connly leapt into the technology sector 33 years ago, little did she know just how transformative that one move would be for her personally, the companies for which she eventually worked and the industry as a whole.
For someone who has held 18 different jobs since then, one might find it hard to believe that it was possible for her to make a meaningful impact in any single role – especially since four of her career moves were lateral and two technically sent her “backwards”. But Linda is a force to be reckoned with and, as you will learn when listening to our recent conversation, she is a woman who is focused on constant growth and transformation!
Personally, she is a devoted mom and wife, a proud breast cancer survivor, a former triple-sport athlete and college basketball player, a (new) cyclist, a passionate home cook and a downright humble human being.
Professionally, she is a tech enthusiast (of course) and an operational architect. She is well versed on how companies can build and optimize their business models to better serve their customers, whether in the business of selling smartphones, Internet of Things (IoT) software or trucking services. (That can be credited to those 18 jobs she held throughout her career, each of which enabled her to broaden her subject matter expertise in marketing, sales, channel and other critical business functions.)
All of this makes her a perfect fit for Zebra!
