About Barletta

Meet the Team

Jeff Haradine, President

Jeff graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Construction Engineering and worked for national home builder Centex Homes. He then moved back to his hometown of Elkhart, IN, and opened a boat dealership, WakeSide Marine, in 2002.  Jeff served on the board of Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA).   He was also partners in an RV and Marine supply company that his brother still operates. Jeff has been involved in local real estate development projects.   Jeff was a founding partner of Barletta Boat Company originally serving as the VP of sales to help launch this great brand and was promoted to president when Bill Fenech retired from the business.   He is thrilled for the opportunity to “maintain the magic”.

Jeff married his high school sweetheart, Jamie, and they have two daughters, Reese 19 and Delaney, 17 as well as Bassett Hound named Albert that you will occasionally see moonlighting in some marketing materials. Our best day ever that we get to repeat often is a full day of fun on Corey Lake in Three Rivers MI.   We love everything that connects us to the water.   We try to catch a glassy ride on a slalom ski (or barefoot) around the lake in the morning. You may find me on a Hobie Cat or a windsurfer when the wind kicks up.   Most importantly, we love a sunset Barletta cruise with friends and family.   I’m so thankful for my work at Barletta because we have an amazing team, and we get to build a boat that truly changes people’s lives by bringing them together on the water.

Mike Chlebek

Vice-President of Operations

Mike graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership and Supervision and a master’s degree in Industrial Technology. He graduated in the middle of the great recession, and it took him a couple of years to find his way to the marine industry. Mike joined a well-known and well-respected pontoon and deck boat brand in 2010. During his time there, he filled roles in quality, production, supply-chain, and engineering. Mike then joined the Barletta team in August of 2017 as VP of Supply Chain. He has since moved into the role of VP of Operations, overseeing production, supply-chain, engineering, and facilities.

Growing up, my time on the lake was typically spent on a fishing boat and I was always looking forward to my next time back out on the water. Mike is married to Samantha, and they have 2 sons, Jackson 13 and Easton 9, 1 daughter Piper 7, and an English Mastiff named MJ. Time is now mostly spent at baseball parks rooting on all 3 of the kids, but still like to get out to the pool, a beach or spend a day on the water whenever we can get the opportunity. Barletta was the company that I was waiting to come along. A company with all of its employees that longed to be the best, that truly looked to partner with all facets of the business. Every relationship matters, and we look forward to continuing to strengthen relationships with our customers, dealers, employees, and suppliers.

Jeff Roth

Vice-President of Marketing

Jeff graduated from Manchester College with a degree in Business Administration/Marketing. Over a period of several years, Jeff spent time in various positions including sales, management, graphic design, project management, communications, and public relations looking for the perfect fit. It wasn’t until April of 2007 that Jeff discovered the marine industry and joined a storied brand as a graphic designer. During his time there, Jeff filled roles that specialized in brand management, social media communications, customer service, customer experience, dealer support, photography, and videography. Jeff joined the Barletta team in 2017, as “employee #6”, as Director of Marketing before being promoted to VP of Marketing a couple of months later. Bill Fenech’s vision and the team and foundation that were built were the fuel needed to fire a passion for Barletta and the lives their boats would touch in the future.

Boating was a major family activity growing up, spending time on Lake Maxincuckee and Lake Shafer in northern Indiana. Jeff met his wife on a blind date on Valentine’s Day back in 1996 and has a son and daughter; Sam (25) and Elena (20). His rescue pup, Ellie, joined them almost 6 years ago and is the perfect sweetheart. Jeff is an avid tennis player, and downhill snow skier. Occasionally having the opportunity to take friends and family out for an afternoon at the sandbar or for a dinner cruise, “just adding water” really has an affect that is tangible even if not completely measurable. Barletta has been the culmination of a lifetime of work – it’s been a dream watching the growth of Barletta and impact it’s had on the entire industry. Jeff feels blessed to have been tapped as one of the original architects of a company that will long be remembered after he fades into the sunset.
