Industry icon Bruce Lane to depart CBORD after 22 years

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

After growing company to major market leader, Mr. Lane announces retirement

When Bruce Lane signed on with campus card system provider CBORD 22 years ago, it was still a small company. As he explains it, he was “employee No. 14.” But today, CBORD has some 475 employees and serves hundreds of colleges and universities, primarily in the U.S. and Canada, but also in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

He had a lot to do with that growth, but now the 53-year-old Lane is planning to call it quits by the end of this year, retiring, at least from CBORD, but not from business life.
