CLEVELAND, OH – January 23, 2020ON Partners, the experience-driven retained executive search firm, today announced that Michael Lynch, a veteran search executive with more than 20 years of experience in the global technology market, has joined the firm as a partner based in the firm’s San Francisco office.

Throughout his career, Lynch has placed CEOs, C-level and board executives in sectors that are increasingly turning to cutting edge technologies such as renewable energy, autonomous vehicles, aerospace and defense, and medical devices – including executives with Bloom Energy, DigiLens, Facebook, Infinera, Kulicke & Soffa, Lucid Motors and Micron Technology.

“Mike is a technophile at heart, and his passion and expertise make him an especially valuable asset,” noted managing partner Tim Conti. “Having a group of highly experienced search consultants like Mike not only helps round out our tech-focused services and Bay Area presence but most importantly, it helps create a better experience for our clients and candidates.”

Before joining ON, Lynch served as senior client partner for Korn Ferry Executive Search, where he focused on the hardware-oriented segments of the firm’s Global Technology Market sector. Previously, he co-led Spencer Stuart’s global Clean Technology Practice and was a member of the firm’s Technology, Communications & Media Practice and Supply Chain Practice.

Lynch earned a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Victoria in Canada and is a former registered professional engineer in the province of Ontario. After completing his M.B.A. at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, he moved into management consulting with EDS and Accenture. He then served as vice president of operations at two early-stage startups before beginning his career in executive search.
