Michael Hills is the Owner and General Manager of Freedom Boat Club Pittsburgh. He is a boating veteran with 27 years of boating experience on Pittsburgh's rivers and on the Chesapeake Bay. Anyone who knows Michael knows how passionate he is about sharing his love of being on the water with others. He is thrilled that the Pittsburgh boating community has become so vibrant as he started boating in Pittsburgh long before it became "cool to boat in Pittsburgh." :o)
Both Michael and his wife, Michele, were born and raised in Pittsburgh. Michael was a graduate of St. Vincent College and spent 30 years in the television advertising industry (Comcast, FOX & CBS) before opening Freedom Boat Club Pittsburgh. Michele is a graduate of Penn State University and is currently a Producer at KDKA TV (CBS) in Pittsburgh.
Michael learned about Freedom Boat Club when he met the General Manager of the Annapolis, MD location. He immediately thought, "someone should do this in Pittsburgh." Michael saw a real need for more access to Pittsburgh's beautiful rivers and to the joys of boating without the hassles and expense of ownership. So he is proud to have purchased a FBC franchise for Pittsburgh and to bring Freedom Boat Club to the Three Rivers!
