Vote for your favorite executive 'stache

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.—November is coming to an end which means the ‘staches are coming off!

Five executives from West Michigan have been growing mustaches for Movember, a month-long campaign to “change the face of men’s health” by raising awareness of health risks.   The men have been posting their progress on Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Facebook page.    The final mustache photos will be posted on the Facebook page on December 2 for a public vote.  Visitors can pick their top two favorite ‘staches by “liking” the appropriate photos.  The vote runs from 11 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.  Tuesday.

This year’s participants are:

  • Jeff Connolly, president of West Michigan Operations & Managed Care for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
  • Thomas Haas, president of Grand Valley State University
  • Jerry Kooiman, assistant dean for external relations at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine
  • Jeff Lambert, president and managing partner of Lambert Edwards & Associates
  • Brian Pangle, president/CEO of Clark Retirement Community

The hairy winner will be announced at the official shave-off ceremony at Design 1 Salon Spa on Plainfield Avenue NE on December 3.  The victor will receive a custom Movember trophy, along with bragging rights.
