Jeremy StolzWe are proud to announce Jeremy Stolz as the new President of VGM & Associates!

Jeremy has served as interim president since June and will continue his role as president of VGM Fulfillment and as a member of the VGM Senior Leadership team. Stolz’s 20-year career with VGM is characterized by leadership, collaboration, innovation, and growth.

“I am thrilled to have Jeremy Stolz step into this important role at VGM. He is an exceptional leader with impeccable integrity–the right leader for VGM & Associates,” said VGM Group CEO Mike Mallaro. “Under Jeremy's leadership, VGM Fulfillment has grown significantly, serving even more customers and expanding the scope of services offered. His ability to build an outstanding team and find innovative and collaborative solutions, and his penchant to find win-win outcomes, have made VGM one of the nation’s fastest-growing distributors of healthcare products direct to the home. At VGM & Associates, he will apply these skills and his experience to lead these communities and further evolve our offerings to meet the needs of the home medical equipment (HME) industry members and partners we serve.”

Stolz began his VGM career in 2003 at VGM & Associates. In 2009, he was tapped to lead VGM’s venture to help HME companies enhance their CPAP resupply business. That venture became VGM Fulfillment and later expanded beyond CPAP interfaces to provide an array of specialized healthcare products directly to user homes. Stolz was promoted to president of VGM Fulfillment in 2017. VGM Fulfillment’s tremendous growth has been driven by leveraging VGM’s traditional group purchasing concept to resupply. After starting in 2009 with a small warehouse space and manual processes, VGM Fulfillment now operates four warehouses across the nation using state-of-the-art technology, and has 250 employee owners.

“Jeremy is an influential leader in the home medical equipment industry. He understands both the challenges members of the industry face as well as the opportunities that lie ahead for them,” Mallaro said. “Our entire VGM team is excited about Jeremy’s promotion and stands firmly beside him as he leads our group into the future.”

“I am honored to accept this position,” Stolz said. “Since I joined VGM nearly 20 years ago, it’s been incredible to see how VGM has grown. I greatly value the community of HME providers and vendor partners that VGM represents and plan to grow and expand the programs, services, and offerings for those communities. I am so thankful for the tremendous privilege of serving alongside two talented teams to support the best providers, manufacturers, and distributors in the healthcare industry.”

Welcome, Jeremy!
