Perry Gattuso

Assistant Manager
Perry came to us here at Timber Lodge in 2015 bringing with him a lifetime of hospitality knowledge.  He started his professional career owning his first business, which was an Akron landmark tavern dating back to the year prohibition ended.  After eighteen years the decision was made to sell and look for new possibilities.  Landing a management position with Portage Country Club and eventually Fairlawn Country Club Perry enjoyed and eight year run overseeing catered events.  This involved hundreds of weddings, family gatherings and numerous golf outings.  Having the opportunity to open a restaurant from the ground up for clients the decision was made to make a new move.  Once the project was completed and turned over it was again time for a change.  This time looking for a position of support for something existing but looking for growth, he found Timber Lodge.  Ron and Lynsey welcomed him with open arms and they have all, as a team, taken Timber Lodge to greater heights.
