Nick Dideriksen

ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE Est. 2017 (319) 874-6952

Hailing from the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in Graphic Design, Nick offers quite a bit of charisma to the Forbin family. Nick says, “Even though I don’t do much design anymore, it introduced me into the technology business world that wasn’t readily available in small-town Iowa.” He has since used those skills to become a killer Network Account Executive. He believes any task is possible if you listen to your customer and provide a solution they need. Nick has an amazing ability to relate to the customer and for creating efficiencies in their workplace. He’s passionate about getting to know as many of his co-workers and customers as possible. He feels strongly that the more people you know, the easier it is to find help when you need it most. Nick says, “Being a dad to my two little girls has been the best thing to ever happen in my life. Other than my family, I’m one of the biggest golf fans you will ever meet. Golfers always talk about their ideal foursome if they could pick anyone in the world. Mine would be Bill Murray, Tiger Woods and my Dad. That would be the perfect day on the golf course!”

John Friel

MANAGER OF IT SERVICES Est. 2015 (319) 274-4533

John is a bit of a unique employee because he actually started Forbin as an internet service provider in Cedar Falls, the first ISP in the Cedar Valley which he later sold to the VGM Group, Inc. In his second run with Forbin, John works with our programming team to support them with new technology, as well as assisting networking and computer clients. John’s programming career started in 8th grade when his teacher introduced him to FORTRAN programming. Since then, he has been educated (both by instructors and through self-education) in numerous programming languages that allow him to provide great insight into various aspects of Forbin’s products. When he’s not tinkering with code, John likes to tinker under the hood and drag race. He also collects Monopoly sets, and divides time between working on his HO Model railroad and learning to play the guitar.
