Ed joined BVH in 2014 after spending nearly 28 years with the Nebraska State College system at Chadron State College and the system office.
He has been involved with higher education capital projects for the past 30 years. He has served as a housing director, facilities director, vice president for administration and vice chancellor for facilities, planning and information technology. Programming, planning and the completion of capital projects has been, and continues to be, a driving force in his career. Ed believes great design, thoughtful execution and dedication to task are essential to a project well done.
He enjoys balancing his schedule between work and his family, including his wife Pat, two daughters, two sons-in-law and six grandchildren. On the weekends, Ed and Pat enjoy outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, motorcycle touring and home projects.
