This is great; however, the reason we launched NB Private Capital was to shift the focus from growth at all costs to measured and responsible growth. Asset management, property management and client services are every bit as important as top-line sales numbers. In fact, probably more so,” stated Nelson. He also added, “We will continue to add the best and the brightest to our team with a laser focus performance, communication and accountability. Our resolve to be known as a best-in-class sponsor across all areas of our business is on the front of our minds every day.”
