NEW YORK — Howard Meitiner, chief operating officer at Fortunoff, was named to the Phoenix House Foundation board of directors at its December meeting.
Rosenthal also said that Meitiner’s appointment to the board would strengthen Phoenix House’s ties to Long Island – where Fortunoff is headquartered and where Phoenix House operates 16 treatment programs – and to the retail industry.
At Fortunoff, where he manages business development projects, Meitiner is responsible for efficiency and productivity, and provides overall strategic leadership. Previously, he was CEO of Sephora, a beauty-retail company founded in France and acquired by Paris-based LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
