Amcom Software, Inc. today announced the appointment of Lynn M. Danko as Chief Financial Officer. The appointment is effective today. She will report to Colin Balmforth, President of Amcom Software.
“We are extremely pleased to have Lynn join the Amcom team,” said Balmforth. “She is a seasoned and results-oriented financial executive with more than 20 years of financial and operational management experience. Lynn will be responsible for our overall financial operations, including accounting, treasury, tax, financial planning and compliance.”
Danko joins Amcom after spending a significant portion of her career as a finance leader for St. Paul, MN-based Lawson Software, Inc., an international software company. While at Lawson, Danko held several positions, including Controller roles in the United States, International Controller in Stockholm, Sweden, and Vice President, Financial Planning and Analysis. Danko was also a key member in several other initiatives at Lawson, including the issuance of debt, implementation of shared services that led to significant tax and operational savings, integration of several enterprise and niche level software acquisitions leading to both domestic and international growth, and leading the Company’s overall strategic planning initiatives.
Danko began her career in public accounting at KPMG in Minneapolis, MN and held various other finance leadership roles with companies in the Twin Cities, including Nash Finch, SuperValu and Travelers Express/MoneyGram. Danko holds a Bachelor’s degree in accounting from Minnesota State University and also studied abroad in Oxford, England.
“Having worked closely with Lynn during her tenure at Lawson Software,” Balmforth added, “I’m delighted she agreed to bring her exceptional financial capabilities and professional experience to Amcom as we look to grow our business in both domestic and international markets.”
Vincent D. Kelly, President and Chief Executive Officer of USA Mobility, Inc., Amcom’s parent company, said: “We welcome Lynn as the newest member of our management team. Indeed, with the addition over the past month of Colin Balmforth as President and Lynn Danko as Chief Financial Officer, combined with the promotions in June of Kate Bolseth and Sean Collins as Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of Sales, respectively, we believe Amcom has the level of management talent and experience in place to aggressively pursue and meet its long-term business goals.”
