In her current role at Winona-based Fastenal, which she assumed in December, Sheryl Lisowski oversees more than 150 finance professionals spanning multiple teams and functions across the world.
Since joining Fastenal in 1994, Lisowski has found ways to use technology to boost efficiency. In the late 1990s, she took the lead on the financial aspects of the company’s enterprise resource planning implementation. Later, she led Fastenal’s external reporting process. A key initiative in this area was implementing ocular scanning recognition technology, which made the department more efficient gathering high-volume transactional data.
