Mike McGrogan joined VFG in June of 1999. Prior to coming on board with VFG, Mike was employed by Orix Credit Alliance and ITT Consumer Finance.

Mike is one of three managers responsible for ensuring that VFG's internal, state-of-the-art, business application software system is being utilized by team members in the most efficient manner. From design to execution, Mike has been an integral part of the implementation process.

His ongoing objectives include making certain that our internal processes are timely and cost effective for both VFG and our customers. It is our priority that customer and funding data is 100% accurate. Mike and his team realize that our customers rely on VFG to have a professional process free of mistakes and/or "hiccups." If our data isn't specific, exact and professional; the fact is that our customers will suffer and we will lose business. Mike's expert knowledge regarding how to best manage our operating systems on an ongoing basis are critical to our long term success.

In addition to his IT systems responsibilities, Mike manages VFG's Collections department and helps manage the Credit department. In his capacity as Credit Manager, Mike works closely with the sales department to effectuate lease and loan transactions on behalf of customers. It is particularly satisfying for Mike when he and the sales team are able to effectively work together in order to successfully consummate transactions on more challenging transactions. Mike's philosophy is simple: By approving more difficult transactions; he is helping vendors to close more sales and is helping to turn prospects into loyal customers. He knows that his ability to make the right decisions, at the right time, have a direct reflection on the fiscal health of VFG.

Mike is well respected by his colleagues because they know he is a team player who can be counted on to work hard and be honest. Whether it is good news, or bad news, Mike McGrogan delivers it straight without any "punches."

Mike is married to Denise. They have one son. Outside of work, Mike enjoys family time and staying fit. He runs several times during the week. One of the McGrogan family's favorite activities is skiing.

Mike also helps coach his son's baseball team. For several years Mike has enjoyed participating in FH Modified Softball. Mike currently serves as a league officer and proudly wears #33 as a player-coach for the Highland Tire / Unwired Verizon team.

Mike enjoys being an active member and volunteering his time to support St. Teresa Church and School.
