Professional history

A seasoned leader and consultant with global experience, Jasper is known for his ability to foster collaborative, creative environments and to inspire and structure cross‐functional teams to drive business results. He excels in connecting an organisation’s vision and brand articulation with its internal structure, delivery and capabilities.

Founded in 2016, Jasper is the owner of the Nelissen Consulting Group (NCG), a Miami-based consulting practice that focuses on the intersection of brand strategy, transformation and organisational development. By simultaneously defining an organisation’s future direction and change required to deliver on this direction, NCG helps organisations and companies be the best they can be.

Before founding NCG, Jasper implemented purpose‐driven programs for organisational, leadership and people development across Asia, Europe and the USA as a change leader at global advertising network Saatchi & Saatchi, and led strategy and consulting projects for a range of blue-chip clients.

As the leader at advertising agency Conill Saatchi & Saatchi in Miami, Jasper accelerated business performance by redefining the agency’s focus and operational structure through a program of rapid change and capability development. Under his leadership, the agency added several accounts to its roster and generated best‐in‐class creative solutions for clients, earning multiple industry awards.

Throughout his career, Jasper has worked with companies of all sizes - from multinationals to local startups – and across multiple industries, including FMCG, Insurance, Finance, Retail, Tourism, Creative Services, Real Estate & Architecture, Health & Fitness, and Media & Content. 

Jasper has an MBA from Cambridge University with a focus on Brand Strategy and Change, an MSC from Delft University of Technology, and is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Miami, teaching courses in Advertising Strategy Development.

In addition to his work for NCG, Jasper sits on the board of a number of Miami based foundations, remains involved with Cambridge Judge Business School as a member of its Alumni Advisory Council, and is an advisor to a New York based media-tech startup.
