Linda Gripentog Nelson began her marine career upon birth, as she was born the same year her parents, Bob and Betty Gripentog bought a small marina on Lake Mead, Las Vegas Boat Harbor. Over the years the family (including her two brothers and her sister and brother-in-law along with Linda's husband and extended relatives as well) have expanded the marina and added two boat dealerships in Las Vegas, Dry Dock Boat Sales and Marine Center of Las Vegas. With their latest acquisition of Lake Mead Marina in 2008, Linda's family has approximately 1,400 slips, two restaurants, fuel facilities, dry storage, boat rentals, boat sales and service, making it the largest boat dealership in Nevada and one of the largest inland marinas in the country.
Married in 1977 to Bruce and receiving her BA in Business Administration in 1979 from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Linda proceeded to raise her two children, Bruce and Candice, while working full time in the family business with her emphasis in boat sales. Currently Linda is the CFO with various responsibilities. She has held many positions with the local marine association and has participated in various business groups over the years.
