Nelson Wells's Bio:

Nelson Wells sold his first startup company at the age of 21. Now he is on his 5th venture helping to facilitate other technology startups as well as designing and prototyping his own inventions, while still finding time to be an #inventor and run his PR Firm, Team Clermont.

Currently, you may find Wells filling any one of the following roles: Cofounder & CEO of indie music & tech PR Firm Team Clermont, speaking about PR & music marketing on panels at conferences like SXSW & CMJ, or surfing different waves at some of his favorite surf spots around the world. 

As CEO of Team Clermont Wells lead the team through its first 20 years tripling its valuation in a niche market in less than the first three years. Team Clermont has since quickly become North America's premier boutique Music & Tech PR Firm specializing in National Publicity campaigns, independent Radio marketing, and film and TV sync licensing promotion. Nelson began Team Clermont in 1997 as the independent radio promotion division of his PR firm, Wells & McLean, inc. with partner Jimmy McLean, artist manager for such acts as Jason & The Scorchers, Five-Eight, and Allgood.

In 2001, Wells expanded the company to incorporate a full-service traditional media department and an online media department. In 2004 Wells & team were the first Music PR company to officially service a full list of music blogs with their clients' recordings to great success.

Now over 20 years of successful music PR campaigns has catapulted Team Clermont to the top of their field. Clients include Warner Bros. Records, Mute Records, Astralwerks, Domino, R.E.M., SXSW, Asthmatic Kitty, Merge Records, SubPop, and more.

In 2002 Wells formed a property investment company for developing, restoring, and marketing renewable, green, coastal and historic properties in Savannah, Tybee Island, GA, Daufuskie Island, SC, and Athens, Georgia. He has since sold the majority of shares in this company and is focussing his time and efforts as CEO of Team Clermont, and on funding and advising small startup software ventures, surfing waves, crafting handy inventions that may change the world or may only improve his kitchen technique, and taking care of his twin daughters.
