CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, AND EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT, BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Charlie Mierswa is in his eighth season as Executive Vice President of Business Operations, and Chief Financial Officer of the Brooklyn Nets. Charged with overseeing the finance, box office, and MIS departments, both in New Jersey and in preparing for the team's move to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Mierswa's leadership is a key ingredient in management's vision of continuing to transform the front office into one of the most successful in all of professional sports.
Prior to joining the Nets, Mierswa was the Chief Financial Officer of U.S. Music Operations for Clear Channel (currently named Live Nation), the largest SEC registered concert promoter, producer and venue operator for live entertainment events. Mierswa brings not only venue and event experience, but a strong accounting and finance background which he developed through almost 10 years at Ernst & Young, one of the largest CPA firms in the world.
Featured in the July 2012 issue of Journal of Accountancy and the May 2009 issue of CFO Magazine, Mierswa has been recognized for his extraordinary financial and operational knowledge that has been a key component to the success of the Nets’ management team.
Mierswa received his B.A. in economics and Spanish from Hamilton College and his Masters in accounting from New York University's Stern School of Business.
A long time Nets fan, Mierswa grew up watching the team on Long Island. Mierswa lives in Westfield, New Jersey with his wife, Julia, and they have two children, daughter, Georgia, who is working in global marketing for Oxford University Press, and son, Philip, a freshman at RPI.
