The CFO: Kent Lillemoe, Field Nation

When and how did you get started in your finance career, specifically within the tech industry?

I started with a CPA firm out of college and quickly realized that career was not for me. I was introduced to the founder of CyberOptics in 1985 when it was a start-up. I loved the early-stage, entrepreneurial, high technology culture.

What is unique about your role with the technology industry, compared to other industries?

The pace of change is challenging. Some companies resist change. Technology companies create and thrive on change.
