ALPHARETTA, GA — Architecture, design, and strategy firm NELSON Worldwide welcomes Aaron Nacey as Senior Project Manager for the Civic, Community, Justice, & Education (CCJ&E) practice. In his new role, Nacey will cross-collaborate with the client, design, and contracting teams to successfully navigate project scopes, schedules, and budgets from ideation to implementation.

“Aaron has a proven track record in effectively managing and communicating all aspects of design, documentation, and construction administration to stakeholders,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at NELSON Worldwide, John “Ozzie” Nelson Jr. “He is adept at navigating challenges and has a natural ability to stay organized and analytical, always prioritizing client needs. He is a great addition to the NELSON team, and we look forward to seeing him grow within the CCJ&E practice.”

With more than 25 years of experience in architecture, engineering, construction, and business, Nacey has a history of working with local and state governments on project types that span various focus areas, including: university, parks, fire and police, maintenance, church, nonprofit, theater, convention, sporting, and government office facilities. Previous clients of his include the Commonwealth of Kentucky, University of Southern Indiana, Murray State University, Kentucky National Guard, Unilever, and Alorica.

Along with his breadth of project type experiences, Nacey will be adding depth to NELSON in the areas of adaptive reuse, roofing methodologies, and construction administration. He will employ his diverse skill set to amplify NELSON’s efforts in the CCJ&E practice.

“NELSON’s culture is rooted in diversity and inclusion, and that alone attracts, retains, and grows the bold-thinking talent required for lasting success,” Nacey said. “I am eager to share my knowledge and elevate the team, and I look forward to helping every member shine brighter.”

Prior to joining NELSON, Nacey co-founded and operated a Kentucky-based architecture firm. His portfolio of projects and methodologies has been featured and awarded by various organizations, and he earned his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Western Kentucky University.
