He has significant expertise leading teams in diverse industries, including financial services, digital signage, vending, payment processing, and cryptocurrency. Finley founded FINdustries eight years ago and the products that he and his team have built are earning more than $1 billion in annual revenue. A change agent focused on building strong relationships across organizations to effectively deliver clean, elegant solutions in complex environments, he is passionate about bringing products to market that delight customers.
