Glenview - Staff

Tyler Krager PGA Professional & Facility Manager

I am the Facility Manager & Head Golf Professional at Glenview Champions Country Club and have been a member of the PGA of America since 2014. I earned my degree in Sports Management from Millikin University where I also played golf. I have been in the golf business since 2006 and have spent time at The Country Club of Decatur (IL), Shoal Creek Golf Course (IL), and Abilene Country Club (TX). Since coming to The Villages in 2016, I have been the most surprised about the number of golf cars travelling this beautiful place and how great this weather is throughout the year. It sure feels great to be out of the winds of West Texas and the cold winters of central Illinois! I am happily married to my beautiful wife Jenna, and enjoy spending my free time with my daughter, Sloan, who was born in October of 2016.

Hometown: Alton, Illinois

My wife Sue and I moved to The Villages in June 2001. Prior to moving to The Villages, I worked 35 years for Owens-Illinois Glass Co. in various states as Quality Assurance Manager. Started working for the Golf Division of the Villages in Feb. 2002 at the Aqua Range and 2 months later transferred to Glenview Champions Country Club. We have 2 boys, both PGA Golf Professionals and 5 grandchildren. People, location, and a country club atmosphere here at Glenview make this job very enjoyable.

Sue Monk Assistant Manager - Inside

Hometown: Reno, Nevada

I moved to The Villages in 2004 from Reno, Nevada when I retired from Washoe County as a Programmer/Analyst. I enjoy golf, kayaking, biking, and our rescued Boston Terrier “Otis”. I love working for GMS and have been so since 2005!

Rick Kleindienst Assistant Manager - Hybrid

Hometown: Stratford, Connecticut

Rick and his wife Priscilla moved to The Villages in January 2010 from Stratford, Connecticut. Prior to moving to The Villages Rick was Manager of Emergency Management for the Yale New Haven Health System, New Haven Connecticut for 8 years. Before that he was the Executive Director of the Southwestern Regional Communications Center for 18 years which provides fire and EMS dispatching to 14 municipalities in southwestern Connecticut. Rick has been an emergency medical technician for 34 years which includes 25 years as an advanced life support technician. He is also an American Heart Association CPR Instructor. He was also the Program Director for the Sumter County Medical Reserve Corps which is sponsored by the Sumter County Health Department.

Rick and Priscilla have four sons and seven grandchildren. They both love to play golf and enjoy outside activities (12 months a year) which was the driving force why they moved to The Villages. Not having to shovel snow or scrape ice also played a big part in their decision process. Rick and Priscilla live in the Village of Hadley with Bandit, their three year old golden retriever.

Keith Rullmann Assistant Manager - Outside

My wife Shirley and I came to The Villages from Feeding Hills, Massachusetts in 2004. While in New England I drove a tractor trailer for Fedex 18 years and then transferred to Leesburg, Florida where I worked an additional 4 years before retiring July 2008. Shortly before retiring I started working for GMS at the Custom Club Shop repairing clubs and helping customers with Demo equipment. The Custom Club Shop is where I was promoted to Assistant Manager. Sometime after working at the shop I transferred to Malloy Hill Country club working for Dan Machande as an Inside Assistant Manager. My time with the Mallory Hill team lasted for approximately 7 years before changing locations again to Glenview Champions.

Barry D. Wythe Assistant Manager - Outside

Hometown: Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Barry and his wife, Maureen, moved fulltime to The Villages in April 2013 from Egg Harbor Township in southern New Jersey where they resided all our lives and raised their two children. Their children and younger grandchildren still live in South Jersey, while their eldest grandson is serving in the Pacific Fleet of the U.S. Navy.

Barry retired from Law Enforcement as a Detective Lieutenant in 2005 from the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office, Special Prosecutions Section Commander and later served as the Administrative Chief for the Sheriff, Office of Professional Responsibility. Maureen held a verity of retail and wholesale positions while caring for their family.

Prior to retiring to The Villages, Barry and Maureen often visited family here and have watched the community grow from CR466 south. They enjoy the evening town square entertainment and country rides on their Harley Davidson. While golf was huge in deciding to move to The Villages, it was the cleanliness, shopping and dining convenience, and active adult living that proved to be the major factor.

Barry has been a Team Member at Glenview Champions Course since September 2014. During his tenure at Glenview he has worked every outside position and gained insight into the day to day operations of the Outside Staff that he uses to ensure a most enjoyable golf experience for residents and guests.
