Lynn Ruthrauff, a Texas Aggie (whoop!), joins Endiem as a Consultant, with extensive project and program management experience serving multiple verticals and filling a variety of roles. She has held several operational roles that enable her to understand the business outcome objectives behind a technical project.
One such role includes the VP of Marketing for a WalMart division, where she improved marketing, strategy, and business development. She was recruited from that role by her former Texas Instruments managers, where she served as Product Marketing Manager and led the strategic rollout of the first Adobe Postscript/PCL laser printer. She led their product management, then procurement management followed by manufacturing management, and finally promoted to the North and South American Operations Manager for a division of Bollore, IER, which manufactured and served electro-mechanical products for the transportation industry.
Lynn motivates teams and stakeholders to focus and complete project work. She truly loves solving complex problems, managing projects, and people. As a natural leader, teacher and trainer, she has eagerly leveraged her capabilities and strengths through opportunities with the Houston PMI and ALN organizations, to lead strategic planning sessions and teach and train others in process improvement, decision analysis, and best practices for transforming organizations through smart project management.
For fun, Lynn is a stage and film actress. She appeared as Hot Lips in a stage production of M*A*S*H and has held supporting roles in various other performances. In addition to a 48-hour short film, she’s been cast in multiple business videos. Lynn graduated from Station Theatre’s Improv program and threw herself into all sorts of off-the-cuff shenanigans with improv troupes--Old Enough to Know Better, Magical Lying Hour, and Black Market Lullaby. Spring of 2018, she played Robert Shallow, Esquire in the Merry Wives of Windsor at Queensbury Theatre. Currently, she is employed by The Murder Mystery Company and travels to events where she and her cast members pull the audience into a whimsical, fun murder mystery theatre experience. Her (very distant) aspiration for the future would be to die laughing.
Opportunity, principles of an organization, and people are important values to Lynn. She wants to work in a collaborative and innovative team. Therefore at the right time, she followed up on a vision developed during a prior work engagement with Endiem, to join their team where she hopes to be considered a valuable team member with a positive impact.
Welcome to the family, Lynn!
