Jurutka joins NIC from comScore Inc., a digital analytics company, where he served as senior vice president, telecom, and general manager for the company’s wireless operator analytics division.
“I couldn’t be more excited to have Brian Jurutka join NIC,” says John Moore, CEO of Atria Senior Living and chair of NIC’s Board of Directors. “At such an important time for seniors housing and care and NIC’s mission, it was crucial for us to find a proven leader with the right background to join [NIC CEO] Bob [Kramer] and help NIC continue to build for the future.”
A former nuclear submarine officer, Jurutka brings more than two decades of leadership experience in analytics, business development, operational management, and data system development and integration.

In his role as NIC’s president, Jurutka will assume responsibility for day-to-day management and operations of the organization with particular focus on building the infrastructure for NIC to deliver on its agenda of delivering transparency to capital markets, advancing quality and availability of seniors housing and care, and fostering leadership development.
“I’m excited to have someone with significant background and experience with analytics,” says Kramer. “As we look toward the future, the seniors housing sector, like most other verticals, requires more and more data to help drive decisions. Brian’s diverse background and experience in partnerships, analytics, sales, and operations will help us continue to position NIC as the leading provider of actionable data for investors on the seniors housing and care sector.”
