Destin, Fla.-based Legendary Marine launched a series of monthly employee events as part of a new Success Builders Breakfast program.

Each month, the Legendary Marine team from all four Gulf Coast dealerships has the opportunity to attend live, via Skype or by streaming video to hear regional leaders address key issues facing their communities.

The inaugural event this month featured state Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., who addressed topics on the legislative agenda.

"Our team really enjoyed hearing from Representative Gaetz and learning about the relevant issues in both our community and state," Legendary Marine managing partner Fred Pace, who spearheaded the breakfast series, said in a statement. “We not only had the opportunity to hear from him, but he also opened the floor to our team and allowed an open exchange of comments and questions, providing a lively and interactive session. The response from our staff to this new initiative was very positive."

In addition to the guest speaker, Pace will provide an overview of marine industry and general market and economic updates and provide recognition to members of the Legendary Marine team. A commemorative T-shirt will be designed and distributed monthly.

Several other speakers have been tapped for 2014 guest keynote presentations, including Merrill Lynch's Tim Krueger, Destin Mayor-elect Mel Ponder and Wounded Warrior Mark McDuffie.

The Panama City, Fla., and Gulf Shores, Ala., locations plan to adopt the program and invite dignitaries from their markets.
