Wife and First Mate – Molly. Owner/President of Pier 7 Marina in Bay City, Michigan. Education includes a BA in Management from SVSU and an MBA in Leadership from Kettering University. SBYC is a legacy to me in some respects, as I am currently a fourth generation member. As current residents of Hampton Township, Molly and I enjoy the proximity of the Club, and find ourselves at dinner and breakfast on a weekly basis. In June of 2013, the Club was host to our wedding reception, from which we received many great compliments on the food and atmosphere of the Club. Molly and I recently welcomed our first child, Jackson Dane, to our family in September of 2016. We are excited to watch him grow and someday become a fifth generation member of SBYC. I am an avid wooden boat enthusiast, having restored our 26″ 1957 Chris Craft Continental to show condition. With nearly two decades of experience in the marine industry, I was presented with a great opportunity to purchase Pier 7 Marina in the winter of 2016. As an advocate of adaptability within the recreational boating industry, I understand the importance of being innovative and forward thinking. I believe that in order to sustain a feasible business model, we must embrace the changing trends within the recreational boating industry and correct our course accordingly. My objective as a member of the Board of Directors is to represent the future interests of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. As a Director, I am committed to the collective development of long term strategies that will effectively re-define the vision of the Club in the years to come.
