Greg Lanigan, Vice President of Technical Operations, has extensive experience in the credit union/IT/management arena. He oversees everything from our state-of-the-art data centers in Michigan and Montana to our office infrastructures.
Throughout his 30 years in IT, Greg has held many notable positions, including VP of Information Technology, CIO, and Managing Director, as well as roles in Application Support and Development. He is a member of the Society for Information Management and is an Executive IT Mentor for We Build Character, a not-for-profit organization focused on growing and strengthening the Michigan workforce through powerful executive mentoring programs.
Greg has launched his children – 3 college graduates from 3 different schools – and Greg now enjoys launching a fishing line into the various inland lakes and rivers around Michigan. Northern Pike, Bass, and Walleye shudder at the mention of his name and the sight of his line in the water. Once a year, he and his brother-in-law pack their fishing gear, beef jerky, and beer and travel by car 5 hours north of Sault Ste. Marie and then fly 30 minutes to an outpost. There, they stay in an extremely remote cabin and fish just about every waking minute of every day. No one can hear them, see them, smell them…
Once the freezer is jammed with fish filets and friends are screaming, “No more! Please!” Greg develops a twitch that can only be alleviated by serious physical activity. That’s when he either hits the gym to pump some iron, jumps on his mountain bike and careens wildly down crazy, root-crossed paths, or puts on his pads and hits the ice so he can beat people with his hockey stick. We’ve heard scuttlebutt that Greg was once found in a confused state, trying to drill an ice fishing hole in the middle of the hockey rink. At the time of the writing of this bio, we are unable to confirm or refute this rumor.
