North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple has appointed Mike Ressler as interim chief information officer following the announcement that CIO Lisa Feldner will step down to serve as ND University System Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Institutional Research.
Ressler has served as deputy chief and director of operations for the ND Information Technology Department since 1997.
“Mike has done an excellent job over the last 16 years serving ITD and the responsibilities it supports,” said Dalrymple. “The combination of his technical expertise and leadership abilities will enable the department to continue offering quality technology services for the state. I would also like to thank Lisa Feldner for her service to the department. She did an outstanding job overseeing the many advances the department made during her tenure.”
