Don Patrick, president and chief executive officer of the not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC), has announced that Brian Ingram of Vandalia has joined the agency as an Information Technology Specialist.
NCAC is a 12-county area social service, community health and public housing Community Action Agency.

The agency’s Central Administration Offices are located in Bowling Green, with NECAC Service Centers operated in each county.
In his new job, Ingram will assist IT Director Kevin Stumbaugh with hardware and software maintenance, support the agency’s telecommunications and computer network systems, install and maintain servers, desktops and laptops, oversee data archiving and disaster recovery, resolve application issues, and document and monitor all system application support.
“We welcome Brian to the NECAC team,” Patrick said. “We look forward to his contributions to our state-of-the-art technological systems.”
“I’m pleased to work at NECAC because I’m able to be one of the people behind he scenes in helping the disadvantaged,” Ingram said.
