Nelson Ramirez has decades of experience as a high tech entrepreneur, executive and community leader.

He launched his first enterprise at the age of sixteen in Enid, Oklahoma. The son of a Cuban dissident who spent three years in prison before escaping Castro’s revolution, Nelson got ‘the call’ early. Patriotism and deep personal faith compel Nelson to give back to his country and community.

Nelson studied Marketing and Business Administration at Phillips University, and entered work of high tech in 1990. He is a former partner at LGE Execs, where he led LGE’s Talent Practice.  Currently, he serves as CEO of Providence Partners and Associates in Austin, Texas.

Nelson specializes in executive search, organizational development, recruiting, and placing top technical talent in both commercial and government organizations. He focuses on recruiting talent and building efficient, repeatable processes for accelerated
hiring and on-boarding.

Nelson’s clients have included HP, TippingPoint, 3Com, Motorola, Silicon Labs, LCRA, Microsoft, Disney, Nortel Networks and a number of venture-funded start-ups.

A confirmed Sooners fan, he has graciously helped numerous Longhorns along their respective career paths.
