An Upstate resident with more than 30 years of experience in legal business administration is Nexsen Pruet’s new COO.
Craig Holderman, who most recently served as CFO at Greenville-based Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, also spent 23 years at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP in New York, working his way up to director of financial operations.
In his new role, Holderman will work closely with leadership at Columbia-headquartered Nexsen Pruet to guide the multi-specialty business law firm’s operations, strategic planning and execution. The firm has offices throughout S.C., including Greenville and Charleston.
“We are thrilled to welcome Craig to this leadership role with Nexsen Pruet,” Leighton Lord, Nexsen Pruett board chair, said in a news release. “His extensive experience will be invaluable to the firm, and I have no doubt he will be instrumental in leading Nexsen Pruet to further success.”
Holderman, an Ohio native, graduated from Ohio University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1985 and earned a master’s in business administration from Pace University in New York in 1996.
“I am honored and excited to join Nexsen Pruet as Chief Operating Officer,” Holderman said. “With world-class attorneys and a collaborative culture, Nexsen Pruet has built a strong foundation from which to grow in the years to come.”p
