Chairman of the Board
Dana’s focus in life is his family, which is evident from his career span at TGG Solutions. He joined Grotenhuis in 1979, and he is the son-in-law of its founder, Frank Grotenhuis. In his 37 years with the company, Dana has played several roles—from an actual producing agent of the original firm, to serving as CEO between 1983 and 2007, on to his current position as Chairman. Dana was integral in supporting Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Michigan (BCBSM) in 1983—when competitors began to lobby against the carrier for its decision to open its product to the independent agent network. Since then, Dana’s active and purposeful involvement in many local and statewide businesses and political organizations, as well as his reputation as a community leader, has benefitted BCBSM and its representation in the market. What most excites Dana about TGG Solutions is the associates' willingness to adapt core competencies to expand market opportunities—he believes it’s in our company’s DNA—a service business is only as good as the people who have chosen to serve in that organization, and we have assembled a great team!
