FARGO, ND – January 31, 2011 – Intelligent InSites, a leading provider of enterprise visibility solutions for the healthcare market, has announced a change on its senior leadership team. Mark Rheault, president and CEO of Intelligent InSites, has resigned. He retains ownership in the company and has been offered a consulting relationship with the company.

Doug Burgum, co-founder and chairman of Arthur Ventures Growth Fund, LLC, has been named interim president and CEO. Arthur Ventures, a venture capital partner, is the largest outside investor in the company.
