Meet Linda – Account Success Coordinator
As one of the first employees to join Pse, Linda Smith has accomplished quite a bit in her seven years with the company. Today, she works with over 50 of our client events, negotiating and contracting hotels. She also works closely with the PGA of America, providing concierge services for players and staff onsite during their events. Read on to learn a little more about Linda in this month’s Employee Spotlight!
What brought you to Pse?
I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart – I actually started a salon when I was 21 and did that for many years. But I always had a passion for travel and had dabbled in making arrangements for people, so I started my own travel agency and cross-marketed that to my salon clients and found great success in that. Eventually, I had the opportunity to sell the agency and came across the listing for the job at Pse managing hotel blocks and decided I would work for someone else for a change!
What do you like most about your job?
I like the challenge of making everybody happy – there is a real satisfaction in that. I enjoy interacting with hotels, PGA staff, players, and their agents. It’s been a few years now that we’ve been working with the PGA and that has given me the opportunity to develop relationships with everybody there and really get to know the players’ and staff needs and deliver on those.
Passion for the job and always learning new things. I know what needs to be done and work tirelessly to complete my tasks. Some might call me a workaholic but I thrive on it!
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
In addition to my other jobs, I went to truck driving school. I drove new motorhomes across the country with my husband for 2 years and it was the best. I got to drive these great big motorhomes and see the whole country – it was like being on vacation and getting paid to do it!
