Before joining BT Partners in 1999, Bert spent the better part of the 80’s and 90’s as a controller and account manager for a manufacturing company. As software and systems evolved at a rapid pace, Bert was in a unique position to see how appropriate applications and technology could enhance a business both from an operational as well as a fiduciary position. This acumen would lead Bert into a consulting practice where he focused on helping many clients with implementing systems that supported their businesses.
“Seeing the manufacturing industry from inside a manufacturer, as well as the fresh perspective of an outside consultant gives me incredible insights to the entire supply chain; from manufacturing, sales & marketing, procurement of raw materials, and of course accounting.” – Bert Nelson
