Frederic (Deri) Meier teaches the senior capstone course (Strategy and Competition) and a seminar on Negotiation.


From 1991 - 1993, Deri was Deputy Secretary of Administration with responsibility for coordinating internal operations of government including contracts, information management and restructurings. He acted on behalf of the Secretary on which range of issues chiefly focused on operations and internal management.

Prior to his affiliation with State government, Deri spent twenty-four years with Mobil Oil Corporation, half of which was in the Mid-East Division. He was on loan to ADCO in Abu Dhabi from 1979 to 1982, where he held the position of Assistant General Manager for Administration with overall responsibility for all the non-technical areas such as finance, personnel, contracts, and services. Before joining ADCO, he had been the Assistant Finance Manager for the Iranian Consortium from 1977 to 1979 in Ahwaz, Iran.

Deri's earlier experience with Mobil was in domestic marketing and finance, where he headed Mobil Marketing's Financial Analysis Unit, which was responsible for the preparation and review of all marketing proposals, which went to Mobil's Board. From 1967 to 1973, he had been involved in the development and testing of self-service/convenience goods marketing of gasoline, an innovation, which transformed the way gasoline, was sold in the U. S. He concluded a nine-year term as President of the Board of the Vermont Center for Geographical Information and has been a trustee of Mad River Glen Cooperative since its inception serving two terms as President.


Deri has a Masters in Public Administration and a Masters in Business Administration from Harvard and an undergraduate degree from Yale University.
