A native Alabamian, David Leet, Jr. took the first opportunity that came his way in Seaside. “My father was the front desk manager at Seaside and informed me of an opening at the bike shop. So, I applied and got the job,” Leet says.
Three years later, he moved on to a better opportunity and his current position as a recreational team member for Seaside. The 33-year-old maintains all of the Seaside Swim & Tennis Club by keeping a watchful eye on the cleanliness of the pools, pool decks and fitness center, and performs any light maintenance the facilities need. This isn’t a small feat for a club that boasts three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a world-class croquet lawn, fitness center, shuffleboard, playground, bath house and tennis pro shop.
Leet plays a key role in keeping everything in top shape for all of the vacationers, homeowners and members, doing so with a smile on his face and offering his cheerful personality.
“I take pride in knowing that I have a hand in making Seaside look as the guests and homeowners have come to expect,” says Leet, who enjoys meeting new people. “It’s neat seeing a different group of faces every week during season.”
Leet has been in his key role at Seaside nearly two years. His loves fishing, going to the beach with his soon-to-be wife, and cheering for the University of Alabama athletics teams. When asked if he had any words of advice for Bama, Leet simply replies, “Roll Tide.”
