Mr. Meza, 41, has an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and started his professional career at Georgia Pacific working as a process engineer at a paper mill. After working to gain direct hands-on chemical manufacturing expertise throughout the processing plant, he was promoted to a shift team leader. To further enhance his management and leadership skills, he attended the Harvard Business School.

At Transom Capital, Mr. Meza used his extensive expertise in operational leadership and manufacturing to establish the required procedures and frameworks to help grow these early-stage companies into mature and stable corporations.
