December News

After a lengthy search, Forward View is pleased to announce that we have a new team member! Marcello Nesta has been added as our Institutional Sales Director for the Sporting Goods Monitor. We're very excited to have him aboard! Marcello actually lives in Switzerland, and we're happy to be developing an international presence. Our Sporting Goods Monitor equity research has already generated significant interest in Europe, so it made sense to bring in a Sales Director with strong connections across the continent and investment banking/sales experience. Marcello will lead sales efforts in Europe and North America, our two areas of focus. We look forward to officially launching the full Sporting Goods Monitor in January with coverage of twenty key companies.

Forward View has been in the news again. In December, we were cited in a Seeking Alpha update on Smith & Wesson. Click here for the article. Forward View was also pleased to rank 15th out of 174 participants in the Estimize Wide World of Sports league for 3Q, highlighting our accurate and deep coverage of sporting goods companies.

We hope you had a blessed Christmas and that your holiday season was truly phenomenal. Our team is excited about the New Year, and we look forward to new clients, new projects and new opportunities to be awesome. Our job schedule is not yet full, so contact us today to put your new website, logo design, digital marketing or financial analysis project on our calendar. Happy 2017!

Nathan Yates

Nathan Yates has been fascinated by technology and finance since he was young. He was the kid devouring the business section of the newspaper (remember those?) while others read everything else. Nathan believes that the American economy is built from the bottom-up, meaning that small businesses and local nonprofits are the foundation of our nation's success. These organizations are the lifeblood of towns and cities across the U.S. Unfortunately, most consulting firms overlook companies or organizations that don't have eight-figure budgets. Nathan thought Forward View Consulting should be different. And we are. As Lead Consultant, Nathan works with each client to deliver only the best financial and/or website development services. Nathan's years of web design experience and his business degrees ensure that professional expertise is brought to each project. Our network of contacts can offer additional specialized guidance if needed. Before creating Forward View Consulting, Nathan worked for an independent equity research firm as a Research Associate covering the industrial and energy sectors. This work involved preparing quarterly 15-40 page reports on multi-billion dollar corporations along with timely analysis of M&A activity and industry-wide news. He also managed research distribution and the company's online presence. Nathan also spent a summer serving as a local financial adviser's Research Intern. Nathan earned a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, graduating summa cum laude. He then earned a Master's degree in Finance from Southern New Hampshire University, where he was named the Outstanding Student in his particular concentration. Now, Nathan is an adjunct professor teaching economics and finance for his alma mater. In his spare time, Nathan enjoys fishing, reading, time with family and serving as a volunteer webmaster for the Clintwood United Methodist Church.
