Meeks, Vice President of Financial Planning has been promoted to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer effective May 22, 2013, the date of the annual meeting of shareholders.
Mr. Meeks, a CFA and experienced financial planning and analysis executive joined Streamline Health in 2012. He is a member of the executive team and has led the company's analysis and appraisal of potential acquisitions, as well as, all financial planning and forecasting. Prior to Streamline, Mr. Meeks was Director of Financial Planning and Analysis at Chamberlin Edmonds & Associates, acquired by Emdeon, Inc. Subsequent to the acquisition, he became head of finance for Provider Payment Integrity, an operating subsidiary of Emdeon, and participated in the evaluation of multiple potential acquisitions.
In addition, the Company has created the new position of Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer with oversight of accounting functions and management of the treasury. Ms. Carolyn Zelnio joins the company after a successful run as CFO for numerous private equity backed firms, including Aderant, Inc., a global financial management software company, and Purewire, Inc., a Software-as-a-Service web security company, acquired by Barracuda Networks, Inc. She also spent 8 years in various financial leadership roles at Witness Systems Inc., a $225M software firm, where she assisted in the company's IPO and accrued deep SEC reporting and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance experience.
Steve Murdock has served as Streamline's CFO for the past two years but is leaving the firm to focus more time on the needs of his extended family. "I thank Steve for his hard work and dedication to making Streamline a better company. Without Steve's diligent work over the last two years we would not be where we are today," said Robert E. Watson, President and CEO of Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. "Taking time to focus on family is admirable and we wish him the best in this important endeavor."
"I know Nick Meeks will move seamlessly into the role of CFO. It has been my experience in working closely with Nick, particularly during the Meta Health Technologies acquisition last year that he possesses a keen mind and sharp eye for the operationally focused financial side of this enterprise. I believe the tandem of Nick and Carolyn -- a sound accounting professional -- will provide the breadth and depth of financial and accounting leadership our Company needs as we continue to grow, and look forward to working with them both."
