2024 GLA Board OF Directors Nominees

Review this year’s nominees for the GLA Board of Directors.

Ron Creten

Ron grew up in Kansas City and attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, graduating in 1970.  He married his college sweetheart, Peggy Miller, the week after graduation and she introduced him to Glen Lake for their honeymoon.  Her Chicago family had been visiting her aunt and uncle at Glen Lake since 1954.  Ron and Peggy continued to come to Glen Lake for vacation until they bought their home on Day Forest Road in 1979.

In 1984 the family moved to Milwaukee and Glen Lake continued to be their summer retreat.  Their two children and six grandchildren have grown up spending summers at the lake making memories.  During the winter, Ron and Peggy return to their home in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Ron was an entrepreneur starting companies and turning around troubled businesses in six different industries throughout the country until he retired in 2021.  His varied business history led him to act as an adjunct professor at his alma mater teaching entrepreneurship.

As someone who has enjoyed the beauty of Glen Lake for so many years, he feels it is important to ensure and protect our valuable asset.  He has admired the work of the Glen Lake Association and looks forward to giving back to the most beautiful place on earth.


Tamara Cutler

Tamara and her husband Jeff bought a cottage on Little Glen in 1996, just a few months after getting married. They were in the process of moving from Chicago to Michigan, and made the cottage purchase their priority before buying their first home together. They treasured Glen Lake after several visits and got engaged there, and hoped their future children could experience the beauty of the area. Their twins, now young adults, enjoy spending as much time as possible at the lake. Tamara and Jeff have been members of the Glen Lake Association and Glen Lake Yacht Club for over 25 years, and she is passionate about protecting the health of watershed.

Tamara has over 22 years of experience in the healthcare industry with two FORTUNE 500 companies, Stryker and Baxter. At Stryker, she held a variety of positions, including Vice President of Healthcare Systems and Vice President of Public Affairs. Prior to Stryker, she held various sales and marketing roles at Baxter. When she is not at Glen Lake, Tamara and her husband live in East Lansing. She has served on a variety of non-profit boards in the Lansing area, most recently as president of the Lansing Christian School Board of Trustees. She has also served on the board of Petals & Pinecones, a mentorship organization for young women, and on the Lansing Christian School Foundation Board.
