Our Team

Michael Nelson

After working for IBM right out of college, Michael went on to a career in financial services, most of which involved leasing/financing of computers and technology-related equipment.  He served as President/CEO of a national equipment leasing firm and served for almost ten years as a Director of a mid-south regional banking organization.

Always a workaholic, after “retiring” several years ago, he decided to write a book for his grandchildren believing that they would face increasing pressures on the choices they would make in their lives.  The name of that book was Good Choices Good Life, and its objective, much like this website, was to help people make better choices in life. In addition to coordinating the start-up activities for GCGL, Michael is writing content and helping to edit some of the content that has been published on the website.

Michael and his wife have two grown children, both with MBA’s and very successful in their own right…and, of course, three wonderful grandchildren to whom his book was dedicated.  He has a BBA/Marketing from the University of Mississippi.
