Executive Voice: He Leads with Transparency at Fast-Growing, $150M Engineering Firm

Chris Nelson has helped his firm navigate five acquisitions in a four-year span – and the growth isn’t over yet.

Nelson is the chief financial officer at McKim & Creed, a 45-year-old Raleigh firm offering engineering, surveying and planning services. The firm operates with an employee ownership model and has around 850 employees across 29 offices in eight states.

McKim & Creed has been on a growth fast track in recent years, with Nelson at the helm of much of that progress. In 2014, the year before he was hired as CFO, the firm had 360 employees across 15 offices in five states.

The firm’s business has grown as well – McKim & Creed finished 2022 with around $150 million in revenue. Nelson is expecting double-digit growth for 2023.
