Nick first learned the ins and outs of business at the heels of his grandfather and father.  His grandfather opened his first corner grocery store in 1917.  Upon his death in 1969, he had already laid in a transition and succession plan to transfer his growing supermarket chain to Nick' father and uncle.  They contined to operate and grow this business into a successful regional supermarket clain, operating across a variety of supermarket business models, including full service and discount formats (such as Cub Foods, County Market, Save-A-Lot).


In 1980 Nick married his college sweetheart, Ann Marie Forbes.  They were blessed with their first child in 1981.  They have been married for over 37 years and have 6 children and 16 grandchildren.



When organizations succeed, so do their employees, their families and their community.  This fact has driven Nick to work with community leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world to create thousands of jobs and develop industry leading organizations.


When Nebraska was facing economic stagnation in 1986, the business community, governor and legislative leaders looked to Nick to design a new business model platform for the State of Nebraska to grow business throughout our communities. 


Nick designed Nebraska's game changing business growth program which had driven Nebraska to the top of many business climate rankings. 


Basing the program on his understanding of company business models, Nick's innovative programs have helped over 850 businesses to achieve long-term, sustainable growth while creating over 100,000 new jobs and $25 billion new capital investment.
