WELCOME NITIN VIG, CEO OF MOBILE DOORMAN
DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) is a nonprofit cultural institution that embraces the power of play as a basis for constructing knowledge. DCM respects all children and their ability to learn and actively supports the child-adult learning partnership. The Museum is excited to announce its newest board member, Nitin Vig, Chief Executive Officer of Mobile Doorman.
“Nitin brings unique expertise and energy to our efforts to create greater access and impact. We are very fortunate to have Nitin join our team as we pivot our strategy to offer more virtual access to DCM programming, play and learning. His experience and acumen in the startup world will be an invaluable asset to our leadership team as we navigate new territory during closure,” stated Andrea Wiles, DCM President and CEO. “Nitin’s background in digital, mobile, technology, data and analytics has already helped to inform our work. As a former consultant to some of the world's largest Fortune 50 and fastest growing startups, he is an ideal addition to our board at this critical time.”
Vig has a MS in Computer Science from University of Texas, Austin and a MBA from University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Prior to joining Mobile Doorman, Vig served on the Motorola Razor development team and followed that technology experience as a management consultant with McKinsey & Co leading corporate strategy, turnaround and transformation.
He explains, “I am a regular member and visitor to DCM for the last five years. I thoroughly enjoy bringing my two boys to the museum on weekends. DCM has been an integral part of our lives here in Naperville. I am pleased to be in a position to advance their critical work supporting the early development of all young children and delivering much needed resources and support to parents navigating the pre-school years.” Vig also serves as a Trustee for the Naperville Public LIbrary. His skills and passion to move DCM forward in the next phase of its development as a cultural institution supporting young children and families make Vig the perfect addition to the Museum’s board of directors.
As the Museum continues its strategic planning, new work is focused on virtual programming to supplement teachers’ instruction and support caregivers educating their children through hybrid and online learning programs. New labs will integrate Next Generation Science Standards and provide teachers and students with hands-on, inquiry-based learning. DCM is also creating workshops to gather cohorts of parents via Zoom to build a community, discover how to support their babies and toddlers through play and learn about specific child development topics. DCM early childhood specialists will further caregiver capacity to support the critical child-adult learning partnership.
The power of play abounds for all audiences with DuPage Children’s Museum. Kids and adults alike play, learn and have a blast exploring the many opportunities the Museum has to offer.
