Christina Zeigler, co-founder of LiquidInc, LLC, earned a BS in Accounting in 1998. This was followed by an MBA in International Business in 2002, while working as a Financial Analyst at Moen, Inc. in Ohio. She has maintained her CPA license since 2004.
In 2002 she made the move into Public Accounting for Ernst & Young in Dallas, realizing client service was her forte. She found a synergy between her accounting background and her passion for understanding the impact of processes and culture on a company’s financials. In 2005, Zeigler moved to New York, becoming VP of Financial Risk Management for Hunter Roberts Construction Group, and was invited to teach at NYU’s Schack Institute Construction Management program. Zeigler went on to become the Controller of Gilt Groupe, Inc, a capstone experience that triggered her desire to form LiquidInc, LLC with partner Brian Cichocki.
Since she was one month old, Zeigler has lived and traveled extensively in Europe and throughout the US. She attributes her versatility and the decision to start LiquidInc, LLC to her parents’ insistence on the life of “planes, trains and automobiles.” She currently resides in New York City.
Before co-founding LiquidInc, LLC, Brian Cichocki spent 9 years working in the Accounting Department of The Atlantic Group, a multi-million dollar office furniture dealership in New York City. His tenure at The Atlantic Group opened the door for a potential business opportunity, leading him to branch out into his own company, B.C. Essential, in 2007. With his first client C3D Architecture, Brian began to build a client base by word of mouth, leading him into a variety of fields from Construction/Contracting to the Entertainment Field. Realizing the growth potential, Brian teamed up with Christina Zeigler and launched LiquidInc, LLC in 2009.
When Brian is not busy running B.C. Essential and LiquidInc, he is doing stand-up comedy in NYC and around the country.
