Nick Headshot


Nick Lorenson, Principal, Software Architect, ERP Practice Lead, is an experienced software developer and technical lead who specializes in architecture and solution design.

Nick’s specialties are product strategy, software engineering, complex application development, cloud-native architecture, systems integration, and enterprise business software implementations.

Nick started in tech doing freelance web development for local small business owners. He brought this experience forward to work at an enterprise healthcare company, where he saw a big disconnect between engineering effort and customer impact.

During his tenure in enterprise healthcare, Nick led a team to develop full stack web applications that improved end user productivity and enabled healthcare workers to capture and report on measures for quality of care through the federal Meaningful Use program.

After leaving the healthcare industry, he joined CorrDyn to help grow the consultancy and pursue his dream of leading highly skilled teams building real solutions to complex problems. 

At CorrDyn, Nick’s accomplishments include leading several large e-commerce ERP implementations in the NetSuite ecosystem, including integration with legacy, on-premise systems and multiple third-party marketplaces.
His industry experience includes enterprise healthcare, retail/e-commerce, and non-profit organizations.

Nick lives in downtown Nashville, TN, where he knows all the best restaurants and how to avoid the tourists. In his free time he advises the board of the Nashville Tree Conservation Corps and hangs out with a Great Dane named Goose.
