Gagne previously served as CFO at Alert Innovation, EBI Consulting and MyWebGrocer, and will oversee accounting, legal, forecasting and financial analysis from Wiser’s Boston office.

“We are so excited to welcome Mat to our coast-to-coast team,” said Hal Charnley, president of Wiser. “For more than 15 years, Mat has held financial leadership positions at early stage companies built on software and media, automation, and financial technology. He brings a multi-faceted perspective to overseeing the core financial responsibilities at Wiser, and will help guide us through organic growth and M&A on the horizon.”

Prior to Wiser, Gagné led MyWebGrocer through a successful recapitalization and scaled the company’s SaaS processes. He helped integrate data from operations, finance, sales and other departments to identify opportunities for organic growth, and growth through acquisitions.
