Dominic Visco, a retired information technology professional, has been named vice president for the eastern region of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP), a nonprofit Catholic lay organization that provides services to those in need and living in poverty.

The organization’s eastern region encompasses Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.

“The ranks of those in need in our community have increased in the last several years, but the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is blessed to have so many compassionate and talented people who believe, as I do, that we can help to turn that around,” Visco said.
