"His encyclopedic knowledge of every aspect of our business, its finances and its strategic vision has made him an indispensable counselor to me and an outstanding leader to our business."
Prior to the start of his decades-long career with DISH, Orban was an auditor at Arthur Anderson LLP. He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Colorado. As a CPA, Orban is a member of the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
In his spare time, Orban enjoys spending time with his family, boating, skiing, coaching, and attending sporting events.
