Karl Nelson, Founder, CEO
Years ago, Karl had an epiphany in a microelectronic engineering cleanroom.
Wearing a full cleanroom suit, Karl could only say hello or make eye contact with colleagues through a plastic visor, day after day. He was cut off from meaningful human contact and realized there had to be a better way to work with people and help them solve problems.
A deeply entrepreneurial spirit, Karl broke away from the cleanroom and fused his engineering background and IT experience in 2005 when he founded Clinic IT. Karl strongly believes in the importance of leading by example and works closely with others to build lean, agile, and highly motivated teams that get work done, fast. As a result of Karl’s leadership, Clinic IT blends technology expertise with decency, consideration, and thoughtfulness as a way to engage customers and help them grow their business.
When Karl isn’t tinkering with technology challenges, he’s spending time outdoors with his family doing what they love most: scuba diving in Southeast Asia, snowboarding on the world's mountains, or simply bicycling around Prospect Park.
