Eric Meisner began his career as a staff auditor at Deloitte and later joined Viacom as an SEC Reporting Analyst, working on their acquisitions of Paramount and Blockbuster and their related integrations. He was hired by AT&T after the Lucent spin-off and was promoted into their Consumer Markets division where he ran a $23B consolidation, and led a cost restructuring reducing the size of the financial team from 75 employees down to 25 while increasing productivity.
During the internet boom of the late 90’s, a one-year stint at the Priceline WebHouse Club created Mr. Meisner’s love for start-up / growth companies. He joined the fractional airline start-up as their first Controller, and helped them grow their revenue to $300M. In his first role as a CFO, he helped a technology driven media company manage their overnight growth from 12 to 80 employees by building a first-class financial infrastructure with his reporting and budgeting skills, ability to obtain a credit facility during the 2008 recession, and automation of the billing process. He was also the CFO of a privately held, PE backed roll-up of clinical service providers, where he was involved with M&A, due diligence, and several integrations.
Eric joins The CEO’s Right Hand as Partner after previously launching Fractional Finance, LLC in 2016. Together they merged to provide small and middle market companies with CFO services on a fractional basis.
Mr. Meisner received an MBA in Financial Management from Iona College as a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting from the University of Massachusetts.
