"AtHoc offers expertise and technology that are critical for large organizations to protect the lives of their employees, the integrity of their facilities and the communities where they work and live on a global basis. I want to support that process and hope my involvement will help AtHoc continue to expand and grow into new markets around the world." Nelson currently is a managing partner of International Strategic Insights, a Washington, D.C.-based advisory firm that he and several partners founded in 2009. Nelson is also a director of the Energy Policy Research Foundation and serves as vice chairman of Mentor Foundation USA. He has, in the past, co-chaired the Director's Council for the American Strategy Program at the New America Foundation and served as chair of the Smart Grid/Electric Vehicles Working Group for the Chesapeake Crescent Initiative. Nelson has also served as vice chairman of the US-GCC Corporate Cooperation Committee, chair of the BIPAC Prosperity Project and as a director of American Near East Refugee Aid, Meridian International Center, Arena Stage, the Middle East Policy Council and the American Petroleum Institute.
