GOLD Club Alumni Spotlight: Joel Munson
Major: Sport Management
After graduating from WSC and interning for the Atlanta Brave's Triple-A affiliate in Richmond, Va., Joel moved to Phoenix, Ariz., where he worked in ticket sales and marketing for the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes for five years.
After working for the Coyotes, Joel moved into the golf industry, working for a luxury golf resort, The Boulders, as membership and golf sales manager for five years.
In August of 2016, Joel accepted the role of regional sales manager with VPAR, a golf technology and live scoring technology company, where he manages their sales and marketing efforts in the Southwest and western United States.
Joel's fondest memory of WSC is the great friends he made and the road trips they took to follow the basketball teams to NSIC away games.
While attending Wayne State, Joel was involved in intramural sports and the SPORTS Club. He was also a proud member of one of the first (if not the first) group of Rice Rowdies.
Joel's greatest accomplishment so far is marrying his wife Jessica (Williams) in April of last year.
Something most people don't know about Joel is that he is a co-owner of a company called One Stadium Drive, which makes primarily Nebraska related apparel and accessories.
Joel's hobbies include golf, travel, and Husker football. He and his wife traveled to Italy for their honeymoon and plan to return again soon. He also loves Ireland for the golf and culture.
