The CFO: Kent Lillemoe, Field Nation

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

The CFO: Mark Sylvester, Invenshure

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

My career in corporate finance started the summer after 9th grade! My parents decided that my brothers and I would run short term retail outlets across different towns in northern MN for the entire summer. The only item that we were not responsible for was driving the load of merchandise from town to town. Other than that, we set up of the store, hired temporary employees, priced the merchandise, opened & closed each day, set up the tills, balanced
the register and generally oversaw the daily operations.

Thanks to local commercial real estate pros CBRE for sponsoring our new Meet A Minnesota Tech CFO series!

The CFO: Peter Goepfrich, Ascentis.

When and how did you get started in your finance career?

I was fortunate enough to get a job at a small consulting firm named Management Resources Initiatives when I was an aimless college graduate. After a short period there, the owner convinced me that public accounting would put me on a significantly more accelerated path than working for him.

So he introduced me to a partner at Price Waterhouse (now PwC), and a few months later I joined the public accounting ranks.

I was immediately drawn to the technology industry and spent the next seven years providing services to a variety of publicly-traded and venture-backed companies before deciding to venture out on the client side of the technology industry.
