The award-winning resort, Madden’s on Gull Lake, announced the retirement of its president, Brian Thuringer, who will be chairman of the board instead. Abbey Pieper will be the treasurer, chief sales and marketing officer, and Ben Thuringer will be the managing director & chief operating officer. Thuringer’s retirement was celebrated on Oct. 3 with his friends and family.

Founded by Jack and Jim Madden, Madden’s on Gull Lake opened its doors in 1936. It was eventually taken over by Brian and Deborah Thuringer. Siblings, Ben Thuringer and Pieper will work as a team to manage Madden’s 350 staff members.

“My brother Ben and I are very excited for our father to be taking this huge step in his career,” says Pieper. “He’s worked extremely hard to make Madden’s a one-of-a-kind destination and we’re humbled to be following in his footsteps. He and our mother have taught us so many valuable lessons about how to make Madden’s a great place and we look forward to continuing the tradition in our family’s honor.”

Madden’s is closing for the 2016 resort season in late October and is set to re-open in April.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
