This week in our Meet the Team series, meet Steve!
Name: Steve Prunty
When did you decide to join the Nicklassons team? I started my career as a high school Physical Education and Health teacher and coach. I was approached by Nicklassons in 1989 and decided that it would be a good fit. Owning my own business and being able to continue working with coaches and athletic directors really intrigued me.
What do you like most about your job? The relationships I make and develop with coaches and ADs. I have the opportunity to work with a great group of people.
What has changed the most since you started working at Nicklassons? The sporting industry is constantly changing, that's what makes it so exciting! It's very different today than when I started in 1989!
What has stayed the same? The one constant in this business is the people I have had the opportunity to work with over the years and the relationships I've made.
What does the word "service" mean to you? The word service means what happens after the sale! Mr. Nicklasson told me a long time ago that it's easy to make a sale, but it's how you take care of the client after the sale that matters the most. That is how you develop relationships with schools, coaches and ADs.
What are some of your hobbies outside of work? I like to travel, hunt, golf, attend sporting events, and most importantly, spend time with my family.
