Wilson took his new post effective January 1 following the retirement of Meyer Sound’s prior CFO, Cliff Eldridge, who had served the company for more than 20 years. Eldridge will remain available in a consulting role during the coming months to ensure a smooth transition.

“This year will be a pivotal one for the company,” noted Meyer. “During the past year, we recovered from the pandemic’s effects and are now poised for significant expansion through 2022. We are fortunate to have Dan join our team. He will bring an extraordinary breadth of experience along with fresh eyes and new thinking. He will have a noticeable impact on the company in a very short time.”

Wilson’s other prior professional experience includes serving as a director at MBIA (a financial services company), an associate at JP Morgan Chase, and an analyst for Deutsche Bank.

Wilson holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Columbia University and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin. While at Columbia, he played on the school’s Division I tennis team, and he continues his passion for the sport by playing regularly.
