Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach graduate Steve Pelletier says that an ability to communicate with clients and understand their needs has been at the helm of his success. "In my role as Director of US Sales at K-VEST, this foundation, coupled with an insight into the unique challenges in the golf industry, has allowed me to successfully provide the outcomes industry professionals are seeking," says Pelletier.

He states that his education far surpassed the curriculum. "It was a place where I was able to gain the knowledge, industry expertise and insights necessary for me to not to simply find a job, but a fulfilling career," says Pelletier.

He advises students to be attentive. "Really listen. Listen to your mentors, colleagues, customers and students. There are so many opportunities open to those who pay attention to the real message being sent," he says. "Take the time to learn from your mistakes. It's how we handle those adversities where we show our mettle, where we grow and where we show our true value in our lives and in our careers."

Best part of his job: "There is absolutely nothing better than collaborating with golf professionals to help them reach their goals—for their players, their business and their personal growth. I now have the ability to look at each day as a new opportunity to learn something I didn't know the day before, and to use that knowledge to further my goals, and the growth of the game. I've been blessed to be able to collaborate with some of the top coaches in the world as a part of a dynamic, forward-thinking team that is on the cutting edge of technology. I learn something new from each of those groups every day. That, to me, is fulfilling, exciting and makes each day better than the ones that came before it."
