2015 Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award
A successful technology executive, Lynn Reedy has worked in software and software development her entire career. As senior vice president and CTO at eBay from 1999 to 2006, she led the complete redesign of the company’s website—both hardware and software—without disrupting the auction site’s operations. She was specifically responsible for initiatives that pertained to the company’s work in software development, product specification, user interface design, usability testing, architecture, and release management.
Prior to working at eBay, Reedy was chief information officer for seven years at Miller Freeman, a trade show producer and publisher of technical and industry-specific magazines. While there, she implemented strategic business systems and developed the company’s Internet strategy for more than 200 websites.
Earlier in her career, Reedy worked for Andersen Consulting and Amdahl Corporation in a variety of management roles. In addition to her CS degree, Reedy earned an MBA from Santa Clara University in 1991.
