Diane Schafer - General Manager

I have been employed in the Marine Industry over the past 30 years.  I was part of Fox Chapel from the very beginning and witness the many changes over the years.  Our marina is the nicest and best equipped facility around.

I feel I have acquired a vast comprehension of the Marine Industry over the years and hope this will help me better serve our customers' needs.  I attend a variety of industry meetings throughout the year looking for new ways to help improve our boaters overall experience.

Because I love what I do and where I work, my personal life is based around boating as well.  My son, Joey, grew up with boating being a big part of his childhood and even though his life
 is taking him in different directions he still tries to fit in as much boating as possible.



Ivan Ryan - Assistant General Manager/Customer Relations

My career in the boating and marine industry began when I was a young boy.  My family and friends grew up on beautiful Lake Cumberland located in central Kentucky.  Over the years, I have been privileged to represent and sell some of the finest pleasure boat, houseboats and yachts in the business.  My early career was spent as a salesman for Kentuckiana Yacht Sales.  Over time, I became the National Sales and Dealer Relations Manager for Gibson Houseboats.  Traveling the United States representing Gibson was a very important part of my sales career.  Later I became the VP of Sales for Bluewater Yachts.  Working for Bluewater, I was fortunate to be able to boat and navigate the entire east coast, west coast and places in between.

Boating has always been a part of my DNA.  Being able to work in an industry that is all about selling fun and helping other enjoy the same, is a unique opportunity.

When not working at Fox Chapel, I reside in Louisville, Kentucky with my wife, Sherrie.  We have three boys, Chase, Casey and Colby in addition to our Boxer, Laila.

I graduated from Bradford School in 2000 with an Associate's Degree in Business Administration.  I came to work at Fox Chapel Marine as the receptionist in 2004 and since was able to learn more fields and become a part of the Financing, Accounting and Marketing/Social Media Departments.  I feel lucky to have grown at Fox Chapel as well as working with the people I do.  I enjoy interacting with our boaters and customers, they are the best!

While not at work, I love to spend time with my family.  I live in Lower Burrell with my husband, son and our dog, Shelby.

I became a part of the Fox Chapel Marine team in December of 2016.  This is a brand new adventure for me and I look forward to learning and experiencing everything I can about the boating industry.  All of our customers are kind and captivating individuals.  I'm thrilled to be here and get to know them!

I grew up with a big family and all kinds of animals.  I frequently visit some of my family that live in Nova Scotia.  When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going to Penguin's games and going to concerts and the movies.
