Expanded role as Director of Professional Services central to company’s growth strategy
Tamarack Consulting has promoted Chad Carlson to Director of Professional Services. Since joining the Tamarack team in 2017, Carlson has been an instrumental part of the company’s sustained growth.
In July, Tamarack spun-off its Salesforce.com products division and refocused its business strategy around investment in digital technologies, enterprise software products, and expanded delivery of professional services supporting digital transformation. Carlson’s promotion is central to the company’s ability to provide greater value across the equipment finance industry. In his expanded role, Carlson gains P&L responsibility for the Professional Services group in addition to managing client relationships.
“Over the past decade, Chad (Carlson) has proven himself as not only an invaluable member of the Tamarack team but also as an exceptional leader,” said Daniel Nelson, Tamarack Founder and CEO. “When we were refining the company’s strategic direction, he was an integral element of execution plans. This promotion is a true reflection of his role in delivering upon Tamarack’s new vision.”
A strong advocate for the equipment finance industry, Carlson is an active member of the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA), has served on the organization’s Ops and Tech planning committee since 2018, and earned the Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) designation in 2019. He began working in the industry in 2006 as a software developer at a leading equipment finance software company.
Earlier in his career Carlson gained experience in software development and account management while at Meritain Health, an Aetna Company. During his tenure at the company, he led a team of employee and contract developers as well as developed and expanded an in-house claims adjudication platform.
A graduate of St. Cloud State University, Carlson earned dual degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy. He resides in Princeton, Minn. with his wife and 4 children.
