John P. Nelson


SilverStone Group

 The second generation of the Nelson family to head what is known as SilverStone Group, John's first experience in business was literally as a young child, when his parents had just opened Nelson Insurance and he and his brother rode in the car when their father called on clients. Now, as a recognized business leader and entrepreneur, John works with both private and public entities to construct alternative funding strategies, including captives, reinsurance, self-insurance and various pre-funding structures. His work with reinsurance intermediaries and direct insurers develops unique strategies that reduce overall client costs.

After serving as an officer in the US Navy, John joined Nelson Insurance in 1965. He has since served as President of The Redland Group (the holding company of Nelson Insurance) and SilverStone Group. His experience also includes serving as the COO of six insurance companies that specialized in tailored programs for associations with difficult risks.

John is a member of many professional associations, such as Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriters, Chief Executives' Organization, Nebraska Presidents' Organization and World Presidents' Organization. He also serves on numerous boards, including Bellevue University, Doane College and United Way.

Because of his active service participation throughout the area, John has earned several prestigious awards: the Boy Scouts of America Citizen of the Year Award, he was named to the Omaha Business Hall of Fame and also inducted into the Nebraska Hall of Fame in 2010. He also received an Honorary Doctorate of Commerce from Bellevue University in 2000, the United Way Citizen of the year in 2002 and was the 2003 King of Ak-Sar-Ben.

n derives deep satisfaction from working at SilverStone Group, mostly, he says, because it's rewarding to see how the firm's Associates come together to solve complex problems, listen to each other's viewpoints and discuss issues thoroughly until a final resolution is reached. He describes SilverStone Group as a collegial company that fosters inquiry and open, honest communication on all matters.
