Thank you Tarmac for underwriting our Meet a Minnesota CTO series, where we get up close and personal with Minnesota’s chief techies!

Ron Lancaster is CTO at Pearson VUE, a business subsidiary of parent learning company Pearson (NYSE: PSO; LSE: PSON) based in Bloomington.

Along the way, I earned a Masters in Software Engineering from the University of Minnesota.
