Lorry Nelson - O'Keeffe and O'Malley

Lorry Nelson

Managing Director

Lorry has thirty years of entrepreneurial and corporate experience in healthcare and financial services including the start-up, rapid growth, and successful divestiture of a national medical/pharmaceutical company to Bain Capital.

Lorry founded UltraCare, a nationwide distribution business catering to home infusion pharmacies, physician supply distributors, long-term care, compounding and retail pharmacies, home medical equipment providers and independent drug wholesalers. Lorry negotiated agreements with group purchasing organizations and implemented progressive marketing campaigns that led to exponential growth, prompting industry leader Medical Specialties Distributors (owned by Bain) to pursue and ultimately acquire UltraCare. This was the first acquisition of a roll-up strategy to take the firm public.

Following the sale, Lorry continued to manage UltraCare and assisted Bain in sourcing and evaluating additional firms for acquisition. Subsequently, Lorry served as COO for an emerging tele-medicine firm that was acquired by a publicly traded company, invested in and directed a medical device start-up, worked as an advisor for Merrill Lynch, and founded healthcare consulting firm AmeriCare, providing revenue cycle management solutions to health systems.

Lorry graduated from Avila College in Kansas City, MO, with a degree in Business Management and along with raising his children has volunteered his time over the past twenty years coaching youth sports and serving on a number of committees and Boards for the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.
