Dr. Nes Rotstein is the Strategy Guru at CSCOE where he has been responsible for developing our strategic vision and business plan since 2015. He is also President of the Chesterton Foundation in Edina and Chairman of the Open Window Theatre in Minneapolis. Previously he was CSO at Whitebox Advisors, LLC in Minneapolis, Chairman of InstyMeds Corporation in Eden Prairie, MN, and a Director at Auto Pharma B. V. in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.

Dr. Rotstein holds a B.Sc. in Chemistry and Physics from Universidad Nacional del Sur, Argentina, and a Ph.D. in Polymer Physics from the University of Minnesota. We are not sure if Nes has trouble holding on to a job, has a short attention span or a high level of curiosity and sense of adventure, but in addition to all the positions mentioned above he has also been a teacher, a cattle herder, a furniture mover and has served in the army. Oh yes, and the accent comes at no extra charge!
