Behind The Scenes At PCH: Spotlight On Michael Collins

A “Big Check” from Publishers Clearing House ― there’s nothing better, right? Well, almost…. even more exciting are the real checks that Big Winners can cash at the bank!

Today I’d like to introduce you to a very important person here at PCH: Michael Collins, Assistant VP & Controller, who helps us get those real checks ready for our winners.

Michael and the finance department work very closely with the sweepstakes administration and promotional development departments, so they’re always aware of all the new prizes being offered by Publishers Clearing House and ready to issue live checks once the lucky winners have been selected.

I asked Michael how he feels about being so directly involved in payouts that really help people and change lives.  Says Michael, “Although it is not my signature that appears on the ‘Big Check‘ that we use for promotional purposes, it is my signature that frequently appears on the real checks that go to our winners.  It is a very good feeling to know that I am a part of the PCH winning experience.”

However, there’s a lot more to Michael’s job than issuing checks! As the person responsible for the operation of the Publishers Clearing House finance department, Michael is involved in every area of finance for the company including accounting, treasury, accounts payable, accounts receivable, tax, payroll and internal audit, as well as the day-to-day transactions.  Whew! I’m tired just listing them all!

But, Michael loves being involved in all the different aspects of finance at PCH. He says, “The best part of my job is the wide range of areas within the finance function and the people with whom I have the opportunity to work with on a daily basis throughout the company.”

Of course, Michael will never write one of those checks with his own name on it since employees are not eligible to win. But if he could become a SuperPrize winner, he says that he’d take a vacation with his family, pay off some bills and save money for his children’s education.

I hope you enjoyed learning about Michael Collins, the man behind the “real checks.” I know I did! Rest assured, dear blog readers, if you win a Big Publishers Clearing House Prize, Michael and his team will make sure your check is ready ― and you can take that to the bank!
Have a great day!
