Director of Infrastructure
Rick spearheaded a project that is destined to create dramatic operational improvements in such varied fields as education, health care, the legal system, and state government.
Called Network Nebraska, this high-speed digital system can deliver video, data, and voice communication simultaneously. Rick led a collaborative effort of the State of Nebraska and the University of Nebraska to create this statewide fiber-optic system to serve Nebraska’s K-12 schools, community colleges, state colleges, health care institutions, libraries, and museums. And, because it can provide complete privacy, state agencies, courts, and hospitals can rely on it for fast and reliable communication.
