Ian Miersch: Vice President of Finance & Human Resources, Ian Miersch is responsible for overseeing scalable business growth as Difenda expands throughout North America.

Outside of work, he uses his energy to help others through the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Program, earning the Group Recreation Volunteer of the Year Status. Ian also enjoys exploring and hiking with his three young children, exercising (so he can keep up with them), and reading professional development books.
