Founders' Operating Advisory Group was formed in the summer of 2015 to formalize our firm's relationship with individuals that provide certain advisory services to our full-time team. These services take the form of pre-closing or post-closing assessments of current practices in specific functional areas, as well as other intermittent coaching, mentoring or other services. Members of the Operating Advisory Group meet annually at the Founders Summit, where senior managers from each of Founders’ companies come together to build group-wide knowledge and relationships, as well as visiting with specific companies ad hoc.​

As a member of the Operating Advisory Group at Founders, Nick is involved in overseeing and governing organizational capability development at each of the portfolio companies, with a special focus on leadership and strategy development. He also provides support to Founders companies with respect to strategic planning and annual operating planning.
