Ed comes to us after spending the last 20+ years at the Abbey Harbor on Geneva Lake, WI. Here he managed a 417 slip harbor and also ran the Abbey Yacht Club. Ed brings a unique expertise with him to MariCorp US; having extensive experience in project management; including overseeing a 2017/2018 complete renovation of the Harbor facilities, which earned him the Building and Growing Award from Marina Dock Age Magazine, as well as a complete overhaul of the yacht club’s outdoor pool and pavilion space in 2019/2020. He also led the marina to successfully obtain its “Clean Marina” certification through the Wisconsin Marina Association. Ed’s time as a harbormaster has allowed him to view each project with MariCorp US through a different lense, having lived that side of things himself. During his time with the Abbey Harbor, he earned his Certified Marina Manager Certification and was also an active member in the Wisconsin Marina Association and Wisconsin Clean Marina Program.

During his free time, Ed likes to boat and swim with his family and is active in coaching youth sports in the area.
