Seven NIPSCO employees—the winners of a company contest will join Skaggs at the Bell, as well as Executive Vice President and NIPSCO Chief Executive Officer Jimmy Staton, NIPSCO President Kathleen O’Leary, and NIPSCO Chief Operating Officer Mike Finissi.

The group represents NiSource’s nearly 8,000-strong workforce.
