Stephen “Steve” Robinson

Chief financial officer, Capstone


In his six years at Capstone, Edina-based publisher of educational content for children, Steve Robinson, has led the business through a complex ownership change and implementation of a new enterprise resource planning system.

The pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to Capstone, as the company had to figure out new and creative ways to get content into students’ hands. This required doubling down on its existing digital platform. Robinson played a major role helping Capstone meet this goal while maintaining profitability. Not only did the company boost its digital offerings in 2020, but it also emerged from the year poised to capture a greater market share.
