Prior to joining Goodby, Nelson was with BBDO for nearly three years, serving as group executive producer for GE. Aside from managing the brand’s advertising production within the agency, he also helped create and lead a global network of producers and storytellers to create content for GE across all markets.
Prior to BBDO, Nelson was at FCB New York, and was part of the Oreo Daily Twist team that won a Cyber Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

He’s a non-traditional producer with both a scrappy, startup mentality and big agency experience, with the passion that will help us deliver breakthrough ideas for our clients.”
