JSI, the leading national provider of regulatory, compliance, and management consulting services to Communications Carriers ("Carriers"), today announced the appointment of Nick Gaubinger to the Board of Directors. Nick is currently the VP of Corporate Strategy and Development at PowerAdvocate, a Verisk Analytics Company, where he focuses on leading the integration of PowerAdvocate into Verisk Analytics' business, after playing a key role in the successful sale of PowerAdovcate to Verisk. Verisk is a multi-billion-dollar company that provides data analytics and risk assessment services.
Prior to the acquisition by Verisk, Nick opened PowerAdvocate's first international office in Calgary, Alberta, where he was responsible for strategic planning and execution of market entry and the market's growth strategy. With a focus on supporting the profitable growth of all PowerAdvocate product lines across the power generation, transmission, and oil and gas verticals, Nick built, maintained, and managed senior relationships across several of PowerAdvocate's marquee customers. We are excited to partner with Nick as JSI looks to prioritize several exciting growth opportunities including new service offerings and expanding its customer base.
"With knowledge derived from supporting hundreds of Carriers and alternative communications providers, we have built a team and range of services to meet our clients' needs in an expert, cost-efficient way," said Manny Staurulakis, President of JSI. "By bringing Nick's perspective onto the Board, we hope to identify new ways to deliver additional value – both in new customer development and with new service programs designed to help our clients achieve their goals."
"Communications service providers – like many other utility companies I have worked with over the years – face a unique set of challenges driven by significant regulatory complexities and JSI offers the expertise necessary for its clients to operate their businesses with the peace-of-mind that they're adhering to the constantly changing regulatory environment and enhancing their long term viability," said Nick. "JSI's remarkable 55+ year operating history is just the beginning and I look forward to collaborating with Manny, Leo, and the rest of the JSI Board on identifying new and continued ways to grow the business."
