Josh Winslow, CEO and general manager of Brunswick Electric, has been elected to the Board of Directors for the National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), an industry-leading information technology company that develops and supports software and hardware solutions for its member-owners, who are primarily utility cooperatives and telecommunications companies across the nation. Winslow’s election to the board fills a vacancy left by Wake Electric General Manager and CEO Jim Mangum, who has represented District 1 on the NISC board since 2000. Mangum also served on the board of one of NISC’s predecessor organizations from 1994-2000.
“Jim’s contributions to NISC have been many; he has seen us through tremendous growth and has been a strong supporter of both NISC and the cooperative movement,” said NISC President and CEO Dan Wilbanks. “I thank him for his contributions, and I’d also like to welcome Josh to our board. He is joining a great team, and we’re very much looking forward to having him on our Board to help guide NISC’s future.”
“NISC’s support is critical as its members position themselves to be successful in an industry future that centers on data-driven business operations and management,” Winslow said. “We are just beginning to realize the potential for ways we can leverage meter data to improve operations, finances and member relationships, and I am eager to further the capabilities of all our organizations in these areas and lead together with strategy, vision and integrity as a member of NISC’s board of directors.”
An electronic ballot for the 2020 election was launched on Oct. 15 of this year and closed on Dec. 1. Each director will serve a three-year term that will expire at NISC’s annual meeting in 2024.
Winslow became the CEO of Brunswick Electric in 2019. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and an MBA from NC State University, and is a licensed professional engineer. In his more than 16 years with the co-op he has served as a staff electrical engineer, manager of operations, and most recently as Chief Operating Officer.
