Lynn Berman, Founder of SWK, Passes at 66
It is with great sadness with which we share the news that Lynn Berman, founder and former President of SWK Technologies, passed away.
Lynn is survived by her husband, Gary Berman, her children Shaun Klein & Melanie Klein, Sydney Berman and Perry Berman, and her newly-born grandson Felix Maximus Klein. They are all part of the SWK family, and we will do everything we can to support them through this difficult time. Please keep Gary and his family in your thoughts.
Kathleen Weiss, Director of HR, had a few words to say in memory of Lynn:
“Lynn was a smart business woman who was a pleasure to work with. She had the ability to look at every situation from every angle and was very measured in her decisions. She was calm, cool and confident. She started this company from her apartment in the 80’s. At that time, a woman starting and heading a technology company was pretty impressive and unusual for the time. We had great fun designing the office at 5 Regent Street in 2005. Although she didn’t completely like my color scheme and I didn’t like hers, we came to a compromise and enjoyed the experience.
She liked nice things and we shared a fondness for Chanel. She was always kind and such a great Mom to her three kids. I remember her looking so elegant and being so proud at Shaun’s wedding. I was pregnant at the time and now, 12 years later, Shaun and his wife have their own baby. So glad Lynn was able to experience being a grandma for the first time before she passed. I also remember her as being a fantastic Passover hostess who went all out for dinner and she made the best fried matzo balls. She was a very special person.”
