  • Herman Matfes (7/2019-7/2022)

    Herman Matfes (7/2019-7/2022)

    Herman Matfes, his wife, Kathy and their two children have been calling Masthope home for over a decade. They found their perfect getaway just in time for their daughter’s second birthday. Since then, you can find them at the lake or pool most of the summer and on the mountain skiing most of the winter. This past year, their son’s skiing surpassed dad’s - a truly proud moment for both father and son at Masthope. Herman is an IT business executive with over 25 years of experience working with some of the largest technology companies in the world. Herman is actively involved in volunteering at their homes in Berkeley Heights, NJ and in Masthope. Herman is a current member of the Communications Committee at Masthope where he’s working with the team to bring innovative improvements to our community. In Berkeley Heights, Herman is an active member of the communications committee, where he just finished spearheading the redesign and launch of the township’s new website. Other projects his committees have delivered included a new newsletter, improved social media presence and community surveys. These endeavors have meaningfully improved communication and dialog between the community, its governing body and administration.

  • Tom Garrity (7/2020-7/2023)

    Tom Garrity (7/2020-7/2023)

    I’m Tom Garrity. I’ve owned a home in Masthope for the past eight years. I am a member of the Document Review Committee and was previously a member of the Ski RFP committee. I am a Registered Nurse, my background is in the Emergency Room, I am currently a supervisor of twelve RNs who manage the care of a primarily elderly population. I’ve been married to my wife, Judy, for forty years, we have three children and two grandchildren. I was initially drawn to the area because I have been fly fishing in the local rivers and streams for years. We chose to buy a home in Masthope because of the many amenities and the overall high quality of life. One of my greatest experiences has been the ability to teach and ski with my two grandchildren, who are five and seven years old. I’m seeking a position on the Board because I realize that our community requires significant input from the owners, and I am in a position to contribute the time. My goal is to ensure that our current level of services is maintained and that we continue to thrive as a community.

  • Chris Pisani (7/2020-7/2023)

    Chris Pisani (7/2020-7/2023)

    My name is Chris Pisani. I have been married to my wife Antonia for the last 12 years. We have 2 amazing boys, Vincenzo 11 and Anthony 6. My family and I have been a part of the Masthope Community since 2017 and have enjoyed every minute. In July 2001 I was sworn in as a New York City Fireman and have since moved up the ranks to Lieutenant. Throughout my 19 years in the FDNY I have been involved in many trainings, deployments as well as writing grants for better tools and training. Also for the past 28 years I have been a volunteer firefighter on Long Island, where I was Chief Officer for nine years. We were responsible for a 6.5 million dollar budget and a membership of 250 men and women. I believe that my vast experience in various leadership positions within the fire department will be a valuable asset to the board as well as to the residents of the Masthope Community. I will devote my time and efforts to be a voice for the community. I will lead with integrity and strive at continuing to make the Masthope Mountain Community a place our families can make wonderful memories for many years to come. Let’s keep Masthope Great together.
