Mark O'Dell

General Sales Manager


Mark started his career with Alpin Haus in 2003 with the service department. In 2004 he moved to sales and soon after over to Finance. As a life long boater on the Sacandaga Lake he loves hot days and the freedom when driving a boat. He grew up on a campground with a marina where he began working at the age of 14. Ever since then he has been in the recreation business.

Mark enjoys spending time on the island with his friends and two children, Hunter and Ava. He loves seeing everyone’s smile in the sun and returning to the dock at dusk. He says to always make sure you have a full cooler before taking off and that your plug is in before launching!

Ron Male

Ron has worked for Alpin Haus since 2006. Ron has twenty plus years experience in retail management and has spent the past eleven years as an RV outfitter. He is a family man to wife Kelley and has three children Skylar, Garrett, and Joe. Before joining the finance team, Ron worked as Assistant Sales Manager. Ron’s interests are music and wood working.

Lyndsay Frederick


Product Specialist


Lyndsay joined the Alpin Haus team in 2013 in the Boat Department. He was named after the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham. A lover of everything outdoors, he loves hiking, kayaking and riding his motorcycle.

He enjoys the peace and calm of heading out on the water early, before the sun is full and when the lake is as smooth as glass. When he was younger Lyndsay and his best friend would take out his old tracker sweet 16 fishing boat any chance they had!

Lyndsay loves to have fun and learn new things. With Alpin Haus he is able to travel all over the country learning what is the latest and greatest in the industry!

Favorite quote – “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the LORD and not human masters.” Colossians 3:23

Joshua Hale


Product Specialist


Josh joined the Alpin Haus team in 2016. During his free time he enjoys keeping physically active by playing hockey, skiing, snowmobiling and more. His favorite part of boating is the sense of community when you are out on the island with everyone relaxing.

Josh loves heading out on the boat in the morning and spending all day on the island with his family and dog. He recommends you never bring your favorite sunglasses!

Being part of Alpin Haus makes Josh part of a team and says he has co-workers who are like family.

Jim Heidenstrom


Product Specialist


Jim started his career with Alpin Haus in 1988. He loves high performance boats and days on the water that are sunny with bright skies. Cruising through the thousand islands is one of his favorite past times and says it is a great idea to purchase a depth finder! Jim enjoys working around all the boats at Alpin Haus and would love for you to stop in and say hi!
