Meet SEABROOK MARCHANT: President, THE MARCHANT COMPANY, Greenville, SC
Get to know Seabrook Marchant, President / Broker-in-Charge of Leverage Partner The Marchant Company, Inc. in Greenville, South Carolina, USA.
What was your vision in founding/stepping into leadership at The Marchant Company, Inc.?
Encouraged by my father, I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and felt after working 25 years for another company that the time was right (1993) for me to step out on my own. At that time I sensed that there was a void in the Greenville market for a company that specialized in new home sales and subdivision development. And that is the way The Marchant Company started.
Can you describe a significant turning point in your career?
No particular "single" thing, just a burning desire to do my own thing and be my own boss.
How has technology, social media and online marketing changed and/or impacted your approach to business?
It's truly amazing to me how these factors have changed our approach to business. We pay much attention to all and are constantly looking for new ways to improve our business by the implementation of all three.
What do you love most about working and living in Greenville?
I was born and raised in Greenville and never desired to live anywhere else. The people here are wonderful and Greenville is truly a unique city with so much to offer.
How do you like to spend your free time?
We have a mountain home not far from Greenville and I love to spend time there. I also enjoy going to athletic events especially anything involving my Clemson Tigers, but the one thing I enjoy most is spending time with my seven grandchildren.
How do you think your colleagues would describe you?
I would hope they would say they enjoy working for us, that I'm a good listener and that I want to see them succeed.
What is your daily "must-do"?
I try to start each day with a brief devotional followed by an hour or so of exercise.
Name one thing we might not know about you.
I have a huge respect for men and women in the armed forces, all veterans and all others who serve our community. I briefly considered a career in the Army while on active duty.
Leverage Global Partners is proud to have Seabrook Marchant and the team at The Marchant Company, Inc. as our partners in the network.
