Join Meridian in welcoming John Corneilson as our Vice President of Finance and Accounting / Comptroller. John joins Meridian from the Luther Springs Camp and Retreat Center in Hawthorne, FL; where he served as Director. Prior to that, John worked in industrial accounting for 22 years, including serving as the Controller of the following manufacturing facilities in Ocala, FL; Poplar Bluff, MO; Boone, IA; and Reynosa, in Mexico.
This will be John’s first experience in healthcare accounting, “I am excited about the opportunities that this organization offers, both in terms of its mission, and its accounting activities…” John stated. Though industrial accounting has many departments for keeping track of expenses, the funding of healthcare organizations adds a level of challenge not seen in his previous experiences.
When asked what he is enjoying most about Meridian he stated “The teamwork within the accounting department is something makes my job most enjoyable.”
John received his Master’s in Business Administration from Northern Illinois University, and will soon celebrate his fifth wedding anniversary with wife Lisa. The two currently reside in Ocala, Fla., with their three dogs and a cat. Lisa is a Pre-K teacher for deaf and hard of hearing children.
Welcome to the team John!
