ABC Companies has promoted Brian Nelson to Vice President of Technical Solutions. He will oversee a team of engineers, technicians and support personnel with a focus on sourcing and providing new and often unique technologies that improve customer operations in groundbreaking ways.
A key resource for ABC customers, the dedicated tech team is also deployed when existing solutions are not meeting a customer’s needs. In his new role, Nelson will be responsible for technical solutions and innovative strategy that will leverage new and emerging technologies.
“My department’s job is simple.” Nelson said in a statement. “We are here to serve the needs of our customers and bring back solutions, not excuses. We focus on getting resolutions to our customers, and as a distributor, we are not constrained by manufacturer limitations. We take great pride in bringing the voice of the customer to all of our manufacturers.
“The breadth of our projects and depth of the team means we can bring solutions to our customers faster and more cost-effectively, in a way that is almost impossible to achieve when the customer must personally address a challenge or specific need to manufacturers and service providers.”
Collaborative, hands-on work
In his previous roles as a staff engineer and sales engineer, Nelson has focused on fulfilling customer needs through team collaboration and a hands-on approach. Most recently, as the engineering Director/Manager, Nelson led a team of engineers and technicians providing full life cycle project handling to coordinate, validate and deploy best possible solutions based on the problems specified by users.
Since 2011, Nelson has been a key contributor to the company’s technical strategy. He has provided pivotal engineering insights for several major technology projects, including the introduction of ABC’s first 100% battery-electric zero-emissions vehicle, and ABC’s ongoing Zero-Emissions Tour.
“ABC has a commitment to providing our customers with a competitive advantage through innovative technology,” said Roman Cornell, President and Chief Commercial Officer, ABC Companies. “Brian’s experience, teamwork, execution on product vision and his passion for serving our customers is helping us change the future of our industry.”
