JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Sept. 6, 2017 - PRLog -- Lakeview Health, a leader in the treatment of addiction and psychiatric disorders, is pleased to announce George Merhi has joined the organization as its chief financial officer. Merhi is a seasoned financial executive and will provide leadership and guidance to the finance and accounting team as well as have control of all the strategic and day-to-day aspects of finance, accounting, cash and asset management.

"Lakeview Health has been laying the ground work to address the need for more treatment resources around the U.S. and Mr. Merhi will be an integral part of that expansion," said Roy M. Serpa, CEO of Lakeview Health. "We have confidence Mr. Merhi will provide strategic and sound financial guidance as we extend our reach to areas, organizations and people in need of our services."

Merhi brings more than 25 years of finance leadership experience in both public and private corporations with revenues ranging from $5 million to $500 million. He has worked in a variety of industries and has been successful in building, strengthening and leading the corporate finance function for companies in various start-up, stable and growth situations.

A graduate of the Western Connecticut State University's Ancell School of Business, Merhi has held several key executive positions in the industries of healthcare, retail and franchise finance and contract food and beverage. He most recently served as chief financial officer for a company providing outpatient physical therapy and helped execute the company's growth strategy from five to 50 outpatient facilities across the Northeast and Midwest with more than 475 employees.

"The financial due diligence necessary for organizational growth is one of my strengths and I am looking forward to helping Lakeview Health expand their treatment and recovery services to underserved markets," said Merhi.

Merhi will be working very closely with the executive leadership team and board of directors to support opening new facilities in major U.S. cities through de novo support and mergers and acquisitions. The company's expansion will help to increase awareness of substance use disorders across the U.S. and help even more people transform their lives.

Lakeview's first expansion project is currently underway in The Woodlands, TX, just north of Houston. They expect to open Lakeview Health at The Woodlands in December of 2017.
