Gina "Knockout" Nixon
Hailing from Columbus, Georgia, Gina “Knockout” Nixon relocated to beautiful Greenville, SC in 2013. She earned her BBA in Accounting from Columbus State University and joins 9Round as the Corporate Controller.
Prior to 9Round, Gina started her career in the telecom industry before moving to other service organizations – software, hardware, supply chain, and transportation. She has worked for both publicly traded and private companies in a variety of roles, with responsibilities such as budgeting, forecasting, reporting, department restructuring, managing audits, ERP implementations, and more.
Gina fell in love with the fact that 9Round encourages the Home Office team members to be active, noting that accounting positions often require a lot of overtime and a lot of time spent being sedentary. The ability to go workout midday is a huge perk, and helps improve focus, performace, and morale.
Knockout Nixon is an avid music lover, and when she’s not cruhcning numbers and improving processes at 9Round, she can probably be found cranking some tunes while hiking, backpacking, or camping. She is also involved with FiA (Females in Action) a free, peer-led boot camp style workout group that meets in local parks throughout Greenville. The organization also likes to give back to the community, including participating in builds with Habitat for Humanity.
