VGCSA welcomes our very own National Sales Manager, Matt Scott as one of their newest members
Victorian Golf Course Superintendent Association (VGCSA) is an association of course superintendents, their assistants, and trade members who represent companies in the golf turf industry. Their mission is to provide training and educational services and a forum to share a common interest in all aspects of golf course management to Course Superintendents throughout the State of Victoria.
Matt shared with the magazine his background in the industry. He started out at Mt. Waverley Bowling Club in 1985 and eventually ended up in sales. Moreover, he also shared the rewards and challenges while working for a USA-based company in 2001.
As our current National Sales Manager, Matt deals with a diverse range of customers. These include civil contractors, hydroseeders, wholesales (nurseries and retail shops), and the professional turf market through our distributors (GTS and Globe). He also conducts site visits to golf clubs, race tracks, sporting ovals, councils. But, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Matt currently works from home since March 2020 and hopes to be back out again to meet great people in the industry.
According to him, some of the most rewarding moments during his career so far are working with great customers, being involved in quite a few major tournaments and events, and being made to feel a part of them.
