Stacia Nelson

Founder/CEO, Pivot Strategies


Stacia Nelson started Minneapolis communications agency Pivot Strategies five years ago and quickly found a niche working on IT transformations. When a global company needs to introduce new technology tools to a population of 100,000-plus employees, it takes more than an all-company email. Nelson digs into these projects and applies her marketing and PR background to make IT communications compelling. She’s grown her team to 15, maintaining year-over-year double-digit revenue growth. Clients include Nike, Cargill, Abbott Laboratories, Medtronic, and nVent.

As a female business owner, she also devotes her energies to elevating the reputation of women IT leaders.
