Senior Vice President, Operations
As NASCO’s Senior Vice President of Operations, Jim Veiger is responsible for NASCO’s IT Operations, which encompasses application development and production support for NASCO’s data centers — the NASCO Processing System (NPS), located in Lexington, Kentucky and NASCO’s internal systems, housed in Atlanta, Georgia. He is also charged with the overall performance and reliability of NASCO’s products and applications, and is responsible for ensuring that NASCO consistently achieves or exceeds the expectations set forth in our service-level agreements.
Jim has been engaged with the NASCO system for more than 30 years. He began working on the NPS in 1989, while at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Ohio. He joined NASCO in 1996, left for a short time to work for Anthem, Inc., and then rejoined the NASCO family in 1998 as the onsite Account Executive for Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey. In 2000, Jim returned to Atlanta to manage NASCO’s Operations. Since that time, Jim has managed numerous data center migrations, consolidations and technology advancements across NASCO’s mainframe, mid-tier, Windows and networking environments.
A few of Jim’s most notable accomplishments include transitioning NASCO’s application development, help desk and production support services from an outsourcing model to in-house development and technical operations teams, allowing NASCO to own and manage all aspects of operating the NASCO system. Jim also established NASCO’s first satellite office, NASCO North, in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
Jim resides in Cumming, Georgia with his wife, Beth, and their five children.
