Bryan Eleazar has over 20 years of diversified finance experience, with the last 13 in private equity-backed multi-site healthcare services, including ophthalmology, hospice and home health, and medical labs. Bryan started in healthcare as Controller at Pathology, Inc., where he was part of the team that extended the company’s reach beyond anatomic pathology into clinical pathology, doubling revenue through a period of severe Medicare reimbursement cuts, shepherding its sale and integration into Laboratory Corporation of America.
He has since held positions of increasing responsibility on the finance side of other medical specialties, most recently serving as Chief Financial Officer of American Eye Associates, expanding that company’s geographical footprint during its rebranding from California Retina into a full-service eyecare practice incorporating LASIK and ancillary services such as glaucoma and oculoplastics.
Prior to healthcare services, Bryan had diversified technical accounting exposure working at top financial consulting firms, specializing in insolvency and restructuring as well as dispute analysis and investigations. He began his accounting and finance career at PricewaterhouseCoopers in New York, San Diego, and Los Angeles, spanning both Audit and Advisory service lines.
Bryan graduated with honors from Georgetown University, Washington, DC, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and a minor in Classics and continues as an alumni interviewer after serving on the Admissions Committee as an undergraduate. He earned his Master’s in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing and Strategy from The Anderson School at UCLA. Bryan received his Certified Public Accountancy license from the State of New York in 1998.
Bryan is a proud dad of 4 children and 2 rescue dogs. When he had free time, Bryan enjoyed playing beach volleyball, cooking, and reading, but nowadays shuttles his kids around swim, drum line, orchestra, gymnastics, ballet, soccer, basketball, and baseball (and the dogs to beaches and trails). Bryan joined the San Diego Blood Bank in September of 2022.
