A different kind of software company.

We started Tamarack in 2001 because we saw a need that wasn’t being met in the marketplace: a smart, nimble, client-centered team with the industry knowledge and software skills to create solutions at every stage of the lease/loan lifecycle. We saw competitors that specialized in the front end, or the back end, or servicing in the middle, but not all of the above. And that’s what companies need: seamless, integrated software solutions designed to create brilliant customer experiences.

The marketplace has rewarded our approach: In 2016 we ranked 600 on the Inc5000 fastest growing companies! The relationships and customer loyalty we’ve built over the years are humbling. In an industry where client-vendor relationships are often short lived, we have clients that have worked with us for more than a decade. Today, from our Minneapolis, Minnesota headquarters, we have consultants in three states. And we’ll continue to innovate and evolve to serve you.

Giving Back

It’s important for us to give back to the industry that has given us so much opportunity. Tamarack has been a member of the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) for a decade. We actively participate in trips to Washington DC to help lobby for our industry. As well, both Daniel and Kristian are active committee members helping plan both the Operations and Technology conference and the Annual Convention.


Daniel Nelson, CLFP Founder and President

With more than 25 years of industry experience, Daniel wears many hats comfortably: software consulting, training, support and development. Prior to founding Tamarack in 2001, Daniel held IT management, conversion and consulting leadership positions at International Decision Systems. He holds a B.A. in Mathematics from St. Olaf College. Daniel loves to spend time outdoors biking, skiing, hunting or fishing. He and his wife, Kim, have been married for over 25 years and live in the Twin Cities. They have two sons.

Kristian Dolan, CLFP Chief Operating Officer and Solution Architect

Kristian brings over 20 years of software development and implementation experience to Tamarack. Prior to joining Tamarack, Kristian was president of E2E Systems, specializing in front office solutions for commercial lending and equipment finance. His technical expertise includes cloud based computing, application development, system architecture, application integrations, and business process modeling. An avid cyclist and outdoors man, Kristian lives with his wife, Mary and three children in the Twin Cities.
