Gordon Converse continues to be a consultant  and is Founder of the company.  He has a passion for building quality, custom homes.  Gordon has designed and built many of the commerical buildings, as well as residential homes in the area.   For the past 50 years he has been an active member of the Elk Rapids area serving on the Harbor Commission and in Rotary, among other things. 

Gordon is retired but not quite willing to give up the excitement of the building business.  When not in the office working you will find Gordon on the golf course or on his boat.





Connie Nault is the President and General Manager of the company.  She is the daughter of Gordon and Joan Converse, the founders of Wanigan Corporation.  Having grown up around the building business, she has come to love the diverse and challenging aspects of it. 

Connie and her husband, Jeff moved back to the Elk Rapids area 5 years ago after spending 21 years in Charlevoix, Michigan. They are excited about being a part of the future progress and growth of both Wanigan and Elk Rapids.  Connie is committed to continuing the "building excellence" that Wanigan Corporation is known for.

When not in the office you will find Connie and her family enjoying time on their boat or taking advantage of the great outdoors.
