Episode 123 – Hayden Nilson

February 14, 2018

Hayden minds the net for better connections


Hayden Nilson was part of a high school state championship hockey team, which is really saying something considering he grew up in Alaska. He continues to play goalie about once a week, but has moved on to coaching and being an advisor to the Board of Directors for his old Youth Hockey League.

In this episode, Hayden and I talk about how playing goalie in hockey requires a certain attitude and confidence which translates directly to standing out in the business world. He hasn’t been afraid to get very involved at both his firm and with the Alaska Society of Certified Public Accountants, both of which have benefited his career. He encourages others to have confidence in yourself – and not just in your technical abilities – in order to get ahead.

Hayden Nilson is an Accounting Associate with Robinson & Ward, PC in Fairbanks, AK. He also serves on the Financial Literacy Committee and the Relations with Education Committee with the Alaska Society of Certified Public Accountants.

He graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with both a BBA, Accounting and a BBA, Finance.
