Kim Lehrman, CEC's CEO, was recently featured in the CBJ on Nate Kaeding's podcast, Real Success with Nate Kaeding. Here's a short excerpt:
"Kim Lehrman, a self-proclaimed “nerd at heart,” learned the importance of being a general rather than a sergeant early in her career.
It’s a lesson that clearly stuck for the CEO of Communications Engineering Co., a Hiawatha company that has been at the forefront of technology and communications for 75 years. Kim, who took on the lead role at CEC in 2019 after seven years as president and chief marketing officer at enTouch Wireless, has built a career in the fast-paced world of technology by asking the right questions: “How do we remain sustainable? Where is the market going? Where are we going to play?”
But the leadership part grew from some early advice that propelled her from her first job as a market researcher with the Iowa Department of Economic Development to the helm of CEC, which has grown from a small local radio shop to a nationally recognized systems integrator."
