Dave Olsen

Founder & CEO

A pioneer in the cloud accounting space, Dave is a U.S. Certified Public Accountant and a Canadian Chartered Professional Accountant with an information systems, software development, and venture capital background.

He began his career as an IT and financial auditor and consultant with Ernst & Young (EY) in the California Bay Area. He left EY in 2007 to become a virtual CFO for several startups, including a venture capital fund and its portfolio companies based in both Canada and the United States.

To service multiple clients in multiple locations, he created a cloud accounting practice before he knew what cloud accounting was. He hired a few remote bookkeepers and implemented cloud technology in the early days of Netsuite and Xero. After about 10 years of word-of-mouth growth, he was ready to expand his impact and grow his practice.

Since early 2018, the company has scaled rapidly with a global, remote team. In 2019, the company was rebranded as Nimbl.

 Dave is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a master’s in information systems, and the University of Virginia with a master’s in accounting. 

When he’s not running his business, Dave is running on foot—as a jogger and hiker. He’s also a committed pedaler and loves mountain and road biking.
