Rich Lahey is an information technology consultant specializing in IT / business alignment. Before leaving to found his own consultancy, Mr. Lahey was a Vice President at IT advisory services firm, Gartner, Inc. Prior to Gartner, Mr. Lahey held positions at IT outsourcer EDS and at systems integrator Accenture. Mr. Lahey joined the board in 2005 after learning of the plight of the Vinh Son orphans through his church. Mr. Lahey lives in Silicon Valley with his wife, Elaine, and their two children.
My background includes 5 years teaching at a technical college and nearly 30 years in management at an over-the road truck dealership working for a family who believes in always 'doing what is right.' After spending 6 months in Vietnam as a radio operator near Quang Tri, and finding that I was unable to forget about my experiences there, I finally developed an understanding that my time in Vietnam had become a positive part of my background and that something worthwhile could take place as a result.
When we share what we have with others we are rewarded many times over and my reward has been the connection with Vinh Son Orphanages.
