Nat Estes brings over 10 years of multi-disciplinary experience to Cresa through his background in labor / human capital consulting, location strategy, and government services. Nat's breadth of experience enables him to take a holistic perspective to client challenges, focusing on a data-driven, yet "real-world" approach to help business leaders make informed decisions regarding labor / human capital, operational location strategy, economic development incentives and business intelligence. At Cresa, Nat leads many consulting engagements focused on labor economics issues that are impacting clients' operational decision-making processes on people, location and real estate. Some of his work includes macro and micro-labor market analysis, compensation and benefits benchmarking, and talent optimization (grounded on labor cost, competition, and availability). He has developed, evaluated, and implemented location and labor solutions for clients through statistical analyses and market research.
