Management Team

Ross Merikallio, General Manager

Boating has been a passion of mine all my life. As a young man, that passion inspired me to build my own 38’ sailboat. Over the past 30 years I have sailed extensively throughout the Caribbean and travelled most of the world.

A professional engineer by trade, I have been an independent businessman throughout my career. I have also been a part owner of Bluffers Park Marina since its inception and the General Manager for the last six years.

My involvement with Bluffers Park Marina has been a unique experience, affording me the opportunity to combine my affinity for business with my love for boating. It truly is the best of both worlds.

Michelle Mears, Office Manager

My extensive background in credit, collections and business has been a great asset in my role as Office Manager at Bluffers Park Marina. I joined the marina in the spring of 2008 and have enjoyed every minute of my time here! My love of people, the Great Lakes and the outdoors has made Bluffers Park Marina the perfect fit for me. There is nothing better than driving down the hill every morning and seeing the marina and the lake--it is a view that never fails to inspire me.

Ed Wilson, Yard Manager

I’ve been building and servicing boats for over 40 years, a career path that has afforded me the opportunity to boat down south and in the Caribbean over the winter months each year.

For the last two years I’ve been the Yard Manager at Bluffers Park Marina.

Whether it’s launching boats, rigging masks, providing new boat support or any thing else that may come up – I look forward to being of service.
