Rivada Hires Lynn as CFO
Wednesday, May 26, 2021 | Comments

Rivada Networks hired Douglas Lynn as chief financial officer (CFO), starting June 1.

Lynn, who served as Sprint's vice president for corporate development for 15 years until last September, brings more than two decades of wireless industry experience to the role.

"Doug played key roles in the T-Mobile-Sprint and Sprint-Softbank transactions, as well as the Virgin Mobile IPO," said Rivada CEO Declan Ganley. "He's a perfect fit for Rivada as we explore expansion and transactions in the U.S. and in other markets."

Lynn has a strong accounting background, serving as the assistant controller for Sprint during his time there, and he also brings board-level experience at publicly traded companies. He has been a leader in structuring unique transactions in the wireless industry. These include the establishment of Clearwire as a wholesale network, its subsequent absorption by Sprint, and the sale of Boost to Dish Networks as part of the T-Mobile-Sprint merger.

"The structural separation of wireless networks from their retail businesses is an important and growing trend as we transition to 5G," Lynn said. "I'm excited to work with the Rivada team as we explore opportunities around the world to help network operators maximize the return on their assets."
