Prior to joining SLI in 2004, Belardi was a partner in his own management consulting firm specialised in providing financial consulting to public corporations.

Before entering consulting, Belardi was promoted through several financial roles to the position of vice president of Finance and Administration at Aydin Corporation, a part of L-3 Communications.

Belardi also held finance positions in businesses in the health care and energy services industries, starting his career at Price Waterhouse.

SLI CEO William Fejes said that he was pleased to promote Belardi to the CFO position as he has been a key member of the SLI management team in his position as corporate controller since 2004.

“Belardi’s years of experience at SLI combined with his strong career experience in finance and administration make him qualified to step into the CFO job and play an important part in the future success of the company,” Fejes said.
