2022 Finance Leader: Julie Nelson


As senior vice president, controller at UWM, Julie Nelson has over 35 years of experience in accounting and has spent the last 10 dedicating her knowledge to help guide the strategic financial decisions at UWM.

Last year, Nelson and her team worked to develop and implement processes to ensure that financial data was reported in an accurate and timely fashion as UWM began its initial public offering. Her experience in accounting helped UWM create a solid financial foundation to navigate the new requirements of being a publicly held company.

In addition to the IPO, Nelson’s role in supporting the company’s growth while achieving greater efficiencies, maximizing revenues and managing costs has also been equally important. Nelson’s team is the hub for all financial information and collectively gathers and analyzes it to help leadership make informed business decisions. Her precise execution and strategic guidance throughout UWM’s growth has been vital to its financial performance.
