NEW YORK: Nelson Fernandez has launched a boutique shop known as Crosby Street Consultants about a year after leaving APCO Worldwide.
Fernandez launched the firm this month, according to his LinkedIn account. He wasn’t immediately available for additional comment.
Fernandez was most recently North American chair and New York MD at APCO, which said he left to pursue new opportunities. APCO handed off Fernandez’s responsibilities for North America to Evan Kraus, who served as interim president of the region, and then to Kelly Williamson, who permanently filled the position last October as president of the region.
Fernandez has worked with clients including the Ford Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, McCormick’s, Suntory, Mars Inc., Altria, Kraft, Pfizer, IBM, Accenture, and Pharmacia, according to the LinkedIn post.
