After attending the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Nelson ultimately dropped out in 1963 and never completed her degree. Despite his not earning a college degree, he still furthered his career in business, first working as a delivery driver for A. Peltz & Sons, a food distribution business founded by his grandfather Adolph. He went on to grow the business with his brother, Robert B. Peltz, shifting the business to frozen foods.

In the late ’90s, through an investment vehicle they controlled, Triarc Companies, Inc., Nelson and his business partner Peter May acquired Snapple from Quaker Oats. He went on to build his wealth by founding Trian Fund Management and investing in companies like Heinz, Cadbury, Kraft Foods, and more. In addition to his own companies, Nelson joined the board of directors of Procter & Gamble and also joined cannabis producer Aurora Cannabis.
