D. Craig Nelson

President & CEO

Craig Nelson believes strongly that you develop leadership and share the credit for success. With a degree in Construction Science from Kansas State University and nearly four decades’ field management experience, he is significantly invested in equipping the Conco team with the internal processes, skill-building opportunity, support structures and rewards to be successful for the client. He believes the client service experience is best delivered through a desire for and focus on excellence. Under Nelson’s watch, Conco hiring practices are rigorous. New talent is coached and mentored to push hard, stretch as far as possible and perform to the highest standard. A hands-on leader, he keeps the lines of communication open to ensure the entire team—from executive leadership to the young construction laborer—is well supported. A serial winner of business awards, Nelson believes Conco’s highest pursuits are healthy skylines in the communities the firm serves and lasting relationships with clients.
