Nelson Family of Companies
- Employment Agencies & Services
While Nelson currently boasts 17 offices throughout California and into Texas, when Gary D. Nelson founded the company in 1970 with one office and one assistant, it must have been hard to imagine what was to come. In 2012, there are six business units?Nelson Staffing, Nelson & Associates, Nelson Technology, NelsonJobs.com, HRhome, and iWorkGlobal?providing staffing and recruiting services to clients in numerous fields including finance, administration, technology, manufacturing, legal, engineering, wine and beverage, and computer gaming.
Regularly recognized as one of the ?Top 10 Best Staffing Firms to Work For,? Nelson was newly honored as one of the Bay Area News Group?s Top Workplaces of 2011. Also in 2011, Gary Nelson was listed as an influential leader in SIReview?s Who?s Who: The Staffing 100. While awards are a nice representation of industry success, Nelson also prides itself on the values it holds dear, embracing excellence, innovation, empathy, and integrity when interacting with clients and employees alike
Highly involved in the community and participating on several boards, the new CEO (as of January 2012) of the Nelson Family of Companies, Craig S. Nelson, follows the family tradition of giving back. He is on the board of the Marin Economic Forum and North Bay Leadership Council; he was the Chair of the Executive Leadership Committee of the 2011 North Bay Heart Walk; and he is the current Chairman of the Marin County Workforce Investment Board.
