Meet the Board of Directors
Contact the Board

When management of The Muirfield Association was turned over to the owners in 1987, a nine-member Board of Directors, the governing body representing Owners, Residents and the Association, was formed. These nine residents voluntarily dedicate their time and talents to serve the interests of the community. They are elected to three-year terms during voting at an annual meeting. Director terms are staggered so that each year, three members are elected to serve three year terms. They must be residents in good standing whose member rights and privileges have not been suspended and they must be able to attend the bi-monthly meetings. The directors are dedicated to long-term good management, controlled growth and fiscal responsibility. Their thoughtful concern ensures reasonable protection of each owner's environment.

The Board of Directors is responsible for setting policies that align with the Muirfield Declaration (Warranty Deed), By-Laws and the Articles of Incorporation. They approve the annual operating budget and capital expenditures.

The Board of Directors meet the third Thursday of every other month at the Association office (January, March, May, July, September and November). The calendar lists all upcoming meetings. The Members Area of the website contains the board minutes from past meetings.

Residents are welcome to address the Board by giving written notice to the Association not less than one week prior to the meeting. Notice may be mailed, delivered, or emailed to info@muirfieldassociation.com. If requesting a hearing in response to a letter of violation for your property, please visit Hearing Procedure and Request for a Hearing. To contact the Board of Directors, email board@muirfieldassociation.com. Individual board members can be found in the Resident Directory.

Meet the Board of Directors

Robert Fathman | President

Resident since 1991

Since I was elected to the Board in 2005, it's been gratifying to work to enhance Muirfield's community. It's been my goal to work with my fellow Directors to constantly update Muirfield - including improvements to the pools, playgrounds, landscaping on Muirfield Drive and pathways. It is an honor and a pleasure to serve on the Board of Directors for such a unique community.

Tom Oleksa | Vice President

Resident since 2001

My wife, Beverly, and I have called The Moors of Muirfield, home for over sixteen years. We chose this community because of all the benefits such as the pools, tennis courts, open walkways, and especially the beautifully maintained common grounds. These are the reasons I feel fortunate to have been a member and Chair the Grounds & Facilities Committee for over eight years.

Having the privilege to be chosen to serve on the Board allows me the opportunity to give back to all the homeowners by listening to their needs, providing guidance, and constantly work to keep Muirfield moving in a positive direction to maintain its number one place in the City of Dublin.

Paula Linehan | Secretary

Resident since 1985

I have loved and lived in Muirfield Village since 1985. It is a unique community that deserves the nationwide attention it receives. In 2001 I began my real estate practice and saw how communities changed over time, sometimes not for the better. I became passionate about helping Muirfield maintain and expand its reputation as Dublin's premier community in which to live. To do this we have to maintain our home values. Steps that have been taken to accomplish this are the Annual Muirfield Home Improvement Seminars sponsored by the Muirfield Association, the "Muirfield List" of recommended vendors available to members of the Muirfield Social Activities Committee, and the architectural and landscaping consultations made available to each home owner in Muirfield Village. We are a diverse community, but what we share is pride in where we live, Muirfield Village. I am honored to have been elected to serve you on the Muirfield Village Board of Directors. I welcome the opportunity to listen to your needs and encourage board discussion of your ideas and/or concerns. Working together we will continue to expand the amenities and services offered to Muirfield residents, amenities and services that other communities would not even think of or consider.

Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher | Treasurer

Resident since 2004

After becoming an empty nester, I was interested in living in a condominium that had a home like surroundings. I was lucky enough to find such an environment at Glenbarr. Through the Board’s diligence, Muirfield's deed restrictions and design standards have kept the beauty of the area and property values. I have been active in the Dublin and Central Ohio community since 1978 and believe that experience will be an asset in addressing issues in Muirfield Village. As a Board member I will work with my fellow Directors to maintain the reputation of Muirfield as a premier community.

John Reiner

Resident since 1979

Muirfield Village has been home for my family and me for thirty-three years. I am glad that our four children were able to grow up in this family-oriented PUD community that promised restrictions to ensure the quality of life we wanted for them. With the city's progressive planning, quality schools nearby, and the security of my neighborhood's restrictions, I feel we've enjoyed wonderful opportunities in the Muirfield area. I am proud to be a long-time member of the Muirfield Association Board of Directors who've worked so hard to protect our reputation and continues to find ways to enhance the qualities of life we all enjoy in this community.

Mike Russell

Resident since 2000

Muirfield Village has many unique qualities that make it a fantastic place to get to live. In 2000, my wife, Peggy and three daughters moved to Muirfield Village. While house hunting in the Columbus area, we were continually drawn to Muirfield for the many paths and the pools, natural surroundings, water, and the required architectural design standards. As an architect, I appreciate the aspects of continuity; yet still how it maintains the sense of small unique neighborhoods throughout the village. Add in the beautiful golf courses and open space and Muirfield Village has few comparisons. As a board member, I strive to maintain the characteristics that created Muirfield and help bring creative solutions as it matures and as we add new amenities.

Rory Gaydos

Resident since 2008

Muirfield Village has been home for my wife Christina, five children, and me since 2008. In addition to my immediate family, I am lucky enough to also have my parents and Mother-in-law as Muirfield Village residents as well. I am proud to have served on the grounds and facilities committee for 7 years and will work hard to find new and innovative ways to ensure we remain a premier community. I will do my very best to enhance the qualities of life we all enjoy and expect as Muirfield Village residents while working to be as transparent and efficient as possible. Please email me with any feedback or suggestions you may have at: rory.muirfieldvillage@gmail.com.

Diana Evans

Resident since 1978

Our family built and moved into our Muirfield home in 1978. I have been active on the Muirfield Grounds & Facilities Committee as well as on the Board of Directors. I was President of the Directors for two years. I am active in the Muirfield Village Garden Club, a 27 year docent at the Columbus Zoo, and a member of the Dublin Community Church. I am proud to be a part of the leading role the Board of Directors has taken in recent years to enhance the quality of life for all our residents.

Valerie Brown

Resident since 2006

"Team Brown" consists of my husband, Jason, and our two daughters. For the past 12 years, we’ve explored the paths, fished the ponds & enjoyed the diverse amenities our village has to offer. I see Muirfield as a beautiful mix of long, standing history and traditions with the energy to continue evolving as an accomplished community. I am honored to be a member of the Muirfield Association Board and will work hard to keep the place we all call, "home" current and our reputation strong. I am an advocate for creative solutions and collaboration. I will strive to do my best to maintain and enhance the qualities of life we have in our village.
