Expertise and experience

Concurrent Strategies was founded in 2014 to provide market research, strategic prioritization, and product development growth strategies for small- to mid-size companies, nonprofits and healthcare service organizations. It was developed from work that Lynette Seebohm established after gaining foundational experience in planning, market research and management from a wide breadth of industries including consumer goods manufacturing, health care and nonprofit organizations.

Principal: Lynette Seebohm

Lynette has more than 20 years of market research, strategic, operational and financial planning in organizations ranging from 20 to more than 5000 employees.
