Gary Nelson, chief financial officer, began his finance career at GE, moving to Honeywell through a series of financial manager and risk management roles. From there he served as vice president at Medtronic PLC, where he launched and led a Legal Operations and Risk Management unit for two decades.
Gary’s legal operations responsibilities focused on better transparency, improved efficiency and lower costs for the company’s legal function. He played an important role in helping the legal department manage its outside counsel spend through the implementation of an innovative preferred provider network and through the implementation of analytics, metrics and alternative fee arrangements. He also led significant legal technology projects such as the implementation of legal e-billing from law firms, contract management and the implementation of legal matter management.
