McGonigal Promoted to Regional Vice President of Sales and Customer Relations for GreenStone


Ian McGonigal has been promoted to regional vice president of sales and customer relations for GreenStone Farm Credit Services, and will oversee five of the cooperative’s branches in west Michigan. McGonigal was promoted following the recent retirement announcement of longtime GreenStone employee Bert Sheridan who will retire in January 2013 after more than 35 years of service.

In his new position, McGonigal will serve as the leader of the financial services officers, crop insurance agents and financial services staff in the Charlotte, Grand Rapids, Hart, Hastings, and Ionia offices. He will be responsible for the guidance and development of this sales team.

“Ian has been an integral part of the GreenStone team for more than 12 years, and during that time he has shown that he has the skills needed to be a leader of our diverse and talented sales team on the west side of Michigan,” said Randy Stec, senior vice president of sales and customer relations for GreenStone. “Having the ability to promote talented individuals – like Ian – from within GreenStone’s workforce into leadership roles is one of the many things that help our organization maintain a high level of satisfaction with our customers.”

“I am excited to have the opportunity to lead the outstanding team of GreenStone professionals in west Michigan,” said McGonigal. “Having been a part of this team for many years has allowed me to gain great relationships with staff and customers in the region, while learning first-hand the challenges facing our members every day. That perspective will be a valuable asset in my new role.”

McGonigal began his career with GreenStone as a financial services officer in the organization’s Lapeer, Michigan, location in 2000. He later transferred to GreenStone’s Grand Rapids, Michigan, office in 2007.

He is a graduate of the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, where he earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree in agriculture economics. He is also a 2007 graduate of the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University.

Born and raised in Englehart, Ontario, Canada, McGonigal grew up on his family’s beef farm. He now resides in Byron Center, Michigan with his wife Julie, and their two children. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, golf, and spending time outdoors.
