Thanks to local commercial real estate pros CBRE for sponsoring our new Meet A Minnesota Tech CFO series!
When and how did you get started in your finance career?
I started in finance in public accounting at Arthur Anderson in the early 1990s. It was a great way to get exposure to a lot of different industries and companies. I was able jump into my career, learning from really talented people within public accounting, as well strong leaders at a number of different client companies. I continue to grow in my profession by surrounding myself with talented people. It’s one of the reasons I joined ABILITY Network.
What is unique about your role with the technology industry, compared to other industries?
The speed of change within technology is greater than most industries. That dynamic increases exponentially when you couple it with the rate of change within the healthcare industry. My role, and that of my team, is focused on enabling business leaders to make informed decisions about our business−quickly. As part of a leading healthcare information technology company, we simply can’t afford a “wait-and- see” approach.
