Co-Founder and CEO

Nelson has spent his entire career helping companies. Helping them grow. Helping them scale. Helping them thrive. Helping them overcome their challenges on their path to success. His capability for transformational contribution is the heart of his abilities as a financial officer.

Having held leadership roles across organizations large and small, Nelson’s experience spans nearly a dozen industries ranging from healthcare to manufacturing, logistics to transportation, real estate to digital marketing, legal and other professional services. Nelson served in the roles of the CFO, interim CFO, COO, and consultant; working with companies of all sizes to achieve their strategic, financial, and operational goals. He earned an M.B.A. in Corporate Finance, Financial Instruments and Markets, and Accounting from NYU’s Stern School of Business.

This experience has culminated in the creation of ProCFO Partners, where the founding principles inform every decision. Every company deserves an expert CFO to guide them along their way and every expert CFO deserves a platform to practice in a way that is meaningful to them.
