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 also enjoy spending time at the club with our two-year-old son Jackson. 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 and recently adding a 1972 55′ Chris Craft Commander to our fleet. 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.
