Nelson Carter brings immense experience within the agriculture industry to his role as a Fusion Leader and Senior Intelligence Analyst at Aimpoint Research. Through growing up on a farm and then operating one himself in North Texas, Nelson brings expertise in crop production and direct-to-consumer business.
Prior to joining Aimpoint Research, Nelson received a degree in journalism from Texas A&M University. He started his career as an agricultural reporter and then spent 15 years in telecommunications working throughout the United States, Europe, China, and Latin America.
Nelson then journeyed back to his farm upbringing by starting a direct-to-consumer operation in 2014 that focused on supplying the restaurant industry in the Dallas & Fort Worth markets. His operation consisted of five acres of vegetable production including a one-acre greenhouse, grass-fed lambs, eggs, and meat poultry, with a state-inspected poultry processing plant he owned and operated.
In his current role, he focuses on policy, technology, labor and economics. His expertise in the agri-food industry has supported client projects involving finance, insurance, agrichemical, and commodities.
