Zolnowsky named BIT Commissioner
A Madison man has been appointed to be the next Commissioner of the state Bureau of Information and Telecommunications. Governor Dennis Daugaard announced today (Tuesday) that David Zolnowsky will be appointed to the position replacing Commissioner Dom Bianco, who left the position in March of 2012.
Zolnowsky is the Director of Computing Services and Chief Information Officer for Dakota State University in Madison, a position he has held since 1985. In that role, he led management of Dakota State’s computing infrastructure to stay on the cutting edge of technology education. He has also worked closely with BIT in administering the K-12 Data Center, which provides information technology and email services to K-12 schools, state government, and state universities.
Prior to coming to D-S-U in 1985, Zolnowsky worked in several different positions within state government in Pierre.
Daugaard said that Zolnowsky’s years of experience leading an innovative technology environment at Dakota State will make him a strong leader for the Bureau of Information and Telecommunications.
