Based in the Rochester, New York, headquarters, Nisbet oversees the firm’s financial team with responsibilities to provide financial reporting and insights to Bergmann’s executive leadership team.

Andrew is well-equipped to help Bergmann implement the appropriate tools and processes for our team’s needs and to ensure that the measures implemented are applied seamlessly among our employees and clients,” said Scott Lockwood, chief financial officer, Bergmann.
