Copywriter, Public Relations
Lynn’s life is the written word—finding the single, simple, correct word to communicate exactly what you mean in a way that will stick with the audience. Whether in long form or short, those words must create images, emotions and action by the target audience in order to be effective. Thousands and thousands of words ago, Lynn began his career in the news business, first as a reporter and editor at The Patriot Ledger in suburban Boston. He then moved on to The Boston Herald where he was the business and financial editor. Twenty-five years ago, he moved into public relations at one of the largest independent public relations firms in Boston. He has worked with clients ranging from Locate in Scotland to Bank of Boston, John Hancock, and Putnam Investments. He has extensive experience in the health, medical and life sciences area. Clients there include McKesson, PPD, Bausch & Lomb, BASF Bioresearch, Boston Scientific, Brighman and Women’s Hospital, DanaFarber Cancer Center, Winchester Hospital, Exeter Hospital, Wellpoint, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Advanced Magnetics, and Vasca. He is a graduate of Iowa State University, and has taught public relations, media relations and corporate public relations at Boston University.
