Meredith Caggiano is a woman to watch for her astounding display of female leadership and entrepreneurship.

The Center for Women and Wealth recently named Meredith Caggiano, CPA and chief financial officer (CFO) of Ethos Veterinary Health, as one of the 21 Women to Watch in 2021. This title is awarded to women who have made monumental strides in their field and display prominent leadership and entrepreneurship skills.

According to the release, Caggiano brings her strategic financial leadership to various business areas by working with the executive management team to establish long-range strategies, plans, and financial policies while preserving the company's financial integrity and curtailing threats.

Additionally, she incorporates her firsthand exposure in overseeing organizations through change initiatives, business ramps, growth capital investments, and organizational changes.

Caggiano says the biggest lesson she learned in 2020 was to demonstrate flexibility and agility in problem solving and prioritize team members to help cultivate best-in-class customer service and patient care at Ethos.

“Our staff was stretched beyond what they thought they were capable of in 2020,” says Caggiano in the release. “However, because they felt valued and prioritized by leadership, they kept caring for patients and clients by continuing to deliver best-in-class medicine during a time of great uncertainty.”

"With a large majority of our staff being women, not only was there a need to be flexible at work, but they needed to have flexibility at home,” she continues. “We had to be nimble in how we deployed new safety procedures and operating workflows and, more importantly, ensure we were showing them the gratitude and recognition that they all deserved. I’ve always said that regardless of the organization, the employees are the biggest asset, but 2020 helped to re-emphasize that point within Ethos.”
