Lou Brill joined VFG in October of 1995.

Lou brings a unique perspective to his role as Sr. VP, Credit & Operations. Prior to joining VFG, Lou worked as the Treasury Manager for one of the largest HMO's in Pennsylvania. His responsibilities at the HMO included managing an investment portfolio worth over $60 Million.

Lou has held several jobs which have provided him with the skills, and some very unique experiences, that have enabled him to excel at VFG.

He held a lead credit management position for a Fortune 500 company. Lou held a position with another large company, that perhaps proved to be his most significant financial management educational experience ever: He worked as the Treasury & Cash Manager for a large holding company that was spiraling downward and eventually failed spectacularly on a high profile public stage. Needless to say, Lou understands, from first-hand experience, the intricate components of financial risk, reward, success, failure, and responsibility.

Lou feels that the working experience and team atmosphere at Vision Financial is special because each employee is empowered to succeed. In fact, one of Lou's favorite company mantras is "If it is to be, it is up to me!" According to Lou, the most rewarding aspect of his job at VFG is "being able to provide valuable capital to deserving individuals and businesses."

Lou likes working in an organization where the team is close knit and each employee has direct access to the owner of the firm. He says, "There is no hiding at VFG. We are a team and we encourage taking ownership of responsibilities in order to make sure our customers are well taken care of so they will keep coming back."

Because of Lou's unique background and experience, he brings a lot to the table in terms of value for the customer. More than anyone else at VFG, Lou understands that "even failing firms have good parts and that there is often solid values that can survive and grow in tough economic conditions."

Outside of work, Lou is a big fan of sports, gardening and political discussion.

Lou Brill played baseball for Indiana University of PA, his college alma mater. He and his wife Colleen both coached their two (now grown) daughters in softball. Lou was a long-time officer in the Mt. Lebanon Girls Softball Association. To this day, Lou is actively involved in sports. Lou is currently the assistant coach of a boys baseball team in the Mt. Lebanon area of Pittsburgh.

Lou is an active participant and a big proponent of supporting and giving back to the community. He and Colleen both volunteer at the East End Thrift Shop in Pittsburgh. Lou's passions include putting an end to all violence, racism, and social injustice.
