Business Note: Grout Promoted to VP at C-Forward


C-Forward announced a new vice president of technical services.

The Covington-based information technology services firm promoted Mike Grout to the role. He has been with C-Forward for eleven years.

“Mike’s dedication to improving and growing the organization has been critical to our success," said C-Forward president Brent Cooper. "He leads technical services not only in Northern Kentucky, but in the Lexington/Central Region as well. He has become a key resource for our staff and our clients."

As a Technical Services Manager, Grout hired and developed many of C-Forward’s service team members. He graduated from Northern Kentucky University in 2006, and was part of Leadership Northern Kentucky's Class of 2013. 

“Like many C-Forward employees, Mike has served the community in a number of ways," Cooper said. "He served on the Northern Kentucky Workforce Investment Board, the Leadership Northern Kentucky Advisory Council, and has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, just to name a few. His dedication to our community is impressive and is a wonderful example for other millennials within our organization.”

“It’s an honor to be promoted to Vice President at C-Forward," Grout said. "I am extraordinarily passionate about our mission and vision and I love the team that we’ve built. For me, trying to make our business, our employees, and our clients a little better is what gets me out of bed each morning. I always strive for continuous improvement in everything I do and I enjoy trying to instill that drive in others.”

Mike lives in Edgewood with his wife, Lisa, and their dog, Scooter.
