BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Our Board meets ten times annually to provide direction and oversight to the Glen Lake Association. Dedicated board members, both past and present, help develop and implement strategies for protecting the watershed and improving the quality of life. Decisions are made in accordance with Association by-laws and a 5-year strategic plan.
Stan has been to Glen Lake every year since he was born. His family began coming to Glen Lake in 1957, originally vacationing at the old Maple Croft Resort in Burdickville, where they eventually purchased their own place. Stan has served on the GLA board since 2018 as both a director and Treasurer.
Stan grew up in Ohio and graduated from Albion College and LSU-School of Banking. For 25 years, he worked for two of the nation’s largest banks before ultimately becoming a community banker. Stan successfully led his community bank through three mergers into a $47 billion, 6-state bank now known as SouthState Bank.

Stan is also a member of the Atlanta Rotary Club.
Dave’s family moved a lot during his youth. The one constant during that time was summers spent at Glen Lake. His grandparents, George and Ruth Schilling, first came to the area in 1927 when they rented a cottage at Dunn’s Farm. They loved it so much that they ended up buying the property next door and building a cottage the following year. Growing up, summers at Glen Lake were ideal. Most days were spent on the lake, participating in various water activities and being surrounded by grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles.
After college, Dave spent the bulk of his career in the Chicago area. He and his wife Judy raised their three kids there and spent summers on Glen Lake. Dave worked as CEO and co-owner of a manufacturing company that supplied process equipment to biopharmaceutical companies. Since retiring two years ago, he and Judy split their time between Glen Lake and Southwest Florida.
Dave has been a member of the Glen Lake Association board since 2020 and has served as membership chair and now Treasurer.
As the daughter of two Michiganders, Kris spent childhood summers enjoying the beautiful rivers and lakes of Michigan. In 2001, she and her husband Ken were introduced to Glen Lake through friends, whom they were lucky enough to visit each summer. At the end of every trip, they talked of having their own place some day and in 2007, they purchased their own slice of Glen Lake heaven.
A graduate of Northwestern University, Kris has held positions in sales and marketing. While raising three children, she was actively involved in her community serving as a Village Library board trustee, a Kenilworth Union Church board member, and co-President of New Trier’s Parent Association. Kris also chaired multiple church and school fundraising benefits and currently volunteers for Blessings in a Backpack in Leelanau County.
Kris and Ken now split their time between Glen Lake and Naples, Florida. Kris joined the GLA board in 2019 and serves as board Secretary and on the Development Committee. She loves all that Glen Lake has to offer—pristine water for swimming, kayaking, and SUP-ing and sitting on the dock watching the sun sink behind the dunes.
Glen Lake has been a special place for six generations of Lanphiers. Edward’s great grandfather built Grey Gables, a family home on the northeast shore of Big Glen in 1927. For 90 years it served as “magnetic north” for the entire family. In 2014, Edward and his wife Cam purchased the old White Cottage on Northwood Drive which had been in the family since the 1940s.
Edward grew up in Illinois, attended high school in Connecticut, and graduated from Knox College. Over the years he has been active in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, founding Sangamo Therapeutics, a publicly-traded biotechnology company. Edward has also held leadership roles within several organizations including serving as: trustee of Buck Institute for Research on Aging, trustee of Choate Rosemary Hall; dean’s advisory board member of University of Michigan’s School of Public Health; member of the Provost Advisory Board at the University of Michigan, and past chairman of the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine.
Cam and Edward recently sold their family home in California and are now full-time Glen Arbor residents. They have four children – Ned, Kate, Liza and Marnie – and five grandchildren, with more on the way!
Corinne’s grandmother began coming to Glen Lake via steamer from Chicago in the early 1930s. Her mother, Grace, attended Camp Kohahna and graduated from Pinebrook School for Girls (now the Leelanau School). Grace introduced her husband Phil to Glen Lake in 1952 and he fell in love with the area as well. Corinne and her three siblings spent their childhood summers active in Glen Arbor, and all four have now settled in the area.
A graduate of Principia College, Corinne began her career in executive search in 1983, specializing in the recruitment of senior lawyers for corporations. While in Chicago, she was involved in numerous community activities, including the board of Prevent Child Abuse America. In 2013, Corinne traded her downtown Chicago townhome and Wacker Drive office to work from a home she shares with her black lab, Allie. She now gets to do work she loves in a place she loves.
Since moving to Glen Arbor, Corinne has served on a number of boards, including the Glen Lake Yacht Club, the Glen Arbor Art Association, Genuine Leelanau and the GAAA Art Grows Here Capital Campaign. She also co-chaired the capital campaign for the Glen Lake Community Library.

During his career, Tom served in different management capacities with various subsidiaries of the Aon Corporation, General Reinsurance and Michigan National Bank.
The Fink Family cottage was built on the east shore of Big Glen Lake in 1940. Growing up, Rick spent nearly every summer there, so it’s no wonder the lake has always felt like home. In 1998, he and his wife Janice made it their permanent home.
Rick graduated from Michigan State University in 1981 with an Electrical Engineering degree and spent his career in the electrical power distribution and industrial process automation businesses. Also active in the Glen Lake Yacht Club, Rick has served as a Director, as Commodore, and as Chair of the Buildings and Grounds Committee. An avid sailor, you can often find him sailing on Glen Lake or the West Bay in Traverse City.
Rick believes that the privilege of spending summers on Glen Lake is special. Maintaining this special place for generations to come is of the utmost importance to him, and volunteering for the GLA is his way of giving back. Rick has served as a Director and liaison for the GLA Technology Committee, Water Level Committee, and the Glen Lake-Crystal River Technical Committee.
Dick and his wife, Anne, have been coming to Glen Lake since 1990. They owned at the Homestead for many years and always enjoyed boating on Glen Lake with their four children. In 2014, the O’Malley’s found an empty lot on Northwood Drive and decided to build a home where they have since enjoyed regular summer and winter family gatherings.
Dick is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Illinois College of Law. He was a lawyer and partner at Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago, where he worked for 35 years specializing in civil litigation, including pharmaceutical patent litigation. Dick and Anne are involved in Chicago civic organizations, including the Big Shoulders Fund for inner-city Catholic schools, the Public Interest Law Initiative and University of Illinois Law School Board of Advisors.
Dick and Anne are members of Glen Lake Yacht Club and are spending more time at Glen Lake now that they are retired. Dick is also sculling with the Northern Michigan Rowing Club on Glen Lake.

He recently made a move into the nonprofit sector as President of the Finnegan Family Foundation, where he serves as Chairman.

Jennifer St. Julian
Jennifer has been coming to Glen Arbor since the early 80s, when she began attending Camp Kohahna for Girls. In the early 90s, Jennifer introduced her husband Joe to the area, and they eventually found a cottage on Little Glen to call home. Joe’s frequent job transfers relocate their family of five all over the country, so Glen Arbor truly represents home-base for them.
After graduating with a math and economic degree from Kenyon College and an MBA from Rice University, Jennifer worked in corporate finance and corporate banking, most recently as a VP at JP Morgan Securities. She is a former CFA and CPA who retired early in order to spend more time with her kids and facilitate the family’s ongoing cross-country moves.
Jennifer currently lives in Houston, Texas. She spends much of her time volunteering at her daughter’s school, at the West Houston Assistance Ministries, and as a board trustee of The Branch School. In addition, she has served as a board member and treasurer of the Glen Lake Yacht Club. Jennifer’s favorite “up north” activities include windsurfing, hiking, gardening, and petoskey stone hunting.
