Jack Nelson

Director of Partnerships

Jack has the combined experience of nearly a decade in university admissions as well as partnership roles at North America’s two largest international academic credential evaluation companies. 

Prior to ReUp, he built the sales team at Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE), a nonprofit organization assessing the academic achievement of individuals from every country in the world. He worked with stakeholders from all areas of institutions to understand their needs, offer solutions, build consensus, and lead complex implementations. 

Jack held multiple admissions and recruitment roles at Hofstra University (NY), working with undergraduate, graduate, international, and transfer students. He has contributed to the field through professional organizations such as NAFSA as a member of Trainer Corps. Recently, he developed and led a new workshop on transfer credit articulation. 

He has a bachelor’s degree from Saint Joseph’s University (PA) and an MS Ed. in Educational Policy and Leadership from Hofstra. The focus of his graduate work was on the effects of first-year transitional programs on retention. 

Jack lives in Long Beach, NY with his wife, two children, and their foxhound, Mia, who loves to join calls.
