With great sadness, we announce the passing of Lynn Davis, husband of MDA’s Chair and Founder Sandra Davis.

Above all, Lynn loved his family, cheering on his kids, grandkids and his wife, whom he believed could do anything—like launch a world-class leadership consultancy. He will be dearly missed by all of us at MDA as he was our greatest champion and advocate, yet his spirit lives on through his family and friends. Rest in peace, Lynn.Read Article
