Neil Paine Joins The Eagle Group Full Time
Neil Paine has now joined The Eagle Group as our full-time Chief Financial Officer! For the past three years, Neil has provided part-time financial and strategic planning support to CEO Ron Reeser and The Eagle Group team. Prior to joining Eagle, Neil was Senior Director of Broadband Product Strategy & Management for Cox Communications, where he helped lead the expansion of fiber networks and gigabit broadband speeds across the country. In addition to his work at Cox, Neil has consulted for leading technology and communications companies, venture capital groups, foundations and federal agencies. Over time, Neil increasingly focused on technology, where he advised large communications companies on major capital projects and shaped product/technology strategies.
Neil also co-founded a startup in Nicaragua that designed and manufactured home furnishings in partnership with local artisans. The business built a sales organization reaching big box retailers and independent stores worldwide that injected hundreds of thousands of dollars into rural communities across Nicaragua.
Neil also serves on the Board of Directors for Siembra Vida, a non-profit focused on building agro-influencers and using farm-to-table experiences to elevate people in Puerto Rico, Colombia and Nicaragua. He has also served for over two years as a mentor in the TechStars accelerator programs. When he’s not working, you can find Neil chasing his two kids, traveling with his wife and running or cycling. He is a lousy golfer, so we will work on that next!
Neil’s experience in structuring and negotiating deals across a number of industries will be a huge asset. We welcome him as he joins Ron Reeser and the team as fellow executive, entrepreneur and visionary in taking Eagle to the next level!
