NISC Honors President and CEO Vern Dosch
Mandan, N.D., Oct. 18, 2019 – National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), a leading provider of software and solutions to utility and telecommunication companies, has named its Mandan campus the Vern Dosch National Campus after their retiring president and CEO.
In honor of his upcoming retirement, NISC created the Vern and Lynne Dosch Scholarship to honor the tremendous impact the Doschs have had on not only the Bismarck and Mandan communities, but the rural electric and telecom industries as well as the NISC family. Bismarck State College, Light of Christ Catholic Schools and the University of Mary have been named as recipients of the NISC endowment to begin the scholarship programs.
“Vern has been a mentor to me for close to three decades,” said Tracy Porter, NISC chief financial officer and vice president of Corporate Services. “I have always appreciated his incredible business acumen and vision for the future, but through it all, he has led with his heart. It is phenomenal what he has accomplished, and we wanted to honor him for his servant leadership to NISC and the community as a whole.”
Dosch has been president and CEO of NISC since 2002. Prior to his appointment, Dosch served as chief operating officer from 2000-2002, and general manager/CEO of North Central Data Cooperative (NCDC), Mandan, N.D., from 1993-2000. NISC is the resulting organization created by the July 1, 2000, consolidation between Central Area Data Processing (CADP) and NCDC. In August, Dosch announced his retirement. Dan Wilbanks, NISC chief operating officer has been named his successor.
“I have had the good fortune to be the spokesperson for this company, standing on the shoulders of all of the talented NISC employees, and it has been a complete joy and privilege,” said Dosch. “I am one lucky guy – I have my family – but I also know you all as my family too. The greatest of heartfelt thanks to you all.”
