He earned this wealth through his work as the chief executive officer of Campbell & Ehrenfried. Later, this company would change its name to Lion Nathan. Myers began working as the CEO in 1965 and oversaw the company until 1998. During this time, he transformed from being CEO to chairman of the board.
