Management Team / Advisory Board Bios

Buck Lyons
CEO, Director, and Chairman
After early career years in finance, Buck has many years experience building and selling start-ups in a variety of industries. He has been involved in the weather and environmental space since 2000, when he co-founded WFn Holdings. He also co-founded environmental data aggregator Synoptic Data PBC in 2012. Buck holds a BA in Mathematics from Middlebury College and MBA from Stanford University. Against his will, he is occasionally featured in our marketing videos, since hiring someone who can act is too expensive.

David St. John
Chief Technology Officer
Starting his career at General Dynamics, David has since been involved with several successful start-ups. His entrepreneurial streak began with a venture formed during graduate school. David has strong expertise in both hardware and software, with a BS in Engineering from the University of Florida and an MS in Engineering from the University of California. An avid wind & water sportsman, his passion around creating better weather data was born of a selfish desire to get more time on the water (saving the world is just icing on the cake). David is affectionately known here as Pooh Bear for his relentless optimism and likeability while driving his team hard.
