The Colorado Water Conservation Board just voted to approve a grant to promote the expansion of aerial lidar measurements of snowpack across Colorado. Lynker has been deeply involved in this process in education, stakeholder coordination and project planning.

Lynker is Now an Employee-Owned Company!

Our company founder, owner, and CEO, Joe Linza, recently initiated a momentous corporate governance change and made Lynker an employee-owned company! Lynker has instituted an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). This is exciting news for our employees and clients as this change benefits the growth and stability of Lynker long term. As the company grows, our employees earn value in that growth. This shows commitment to our customers and their missions and the employees supporting that mission.

What hasn’t changed? Our leadership, culture, values and way of doing business that makes us successful. Our commitment to “global environmental sustainment and economic prosperity for governments, communities and companies” continues to drive Lynker.
