Michael Van Pelt is President and founder of Ascent Leadership Resources based in Spartanburg, South Carolina and operating in the Upstate of South Carolina.
Michael’s vision for starting Ascent is defined in his own words, “I started Ascent Leadership Resources as a result of my own need to find purpose, develop clear goals, and take back control of my calling. I understand what it feels like to be lost, alone, and scared of what may be around the corner. I help create a buffer zone so individuals or organizations can identify their obstacles and push forward towards success.”
Serving in top managerial positions for most of his career, Mike brings over 20 years of diverse account management, consulting, and leadership development experience within a variety of industries including telecommunications, insurance, training, and non-profit agencies. He holds a BA in Business Leadership and a Masters of Public Administration.
Mike is actively involved in serving his local community and sits on several community growth and non-profit boards. A native of Iowa, Mike and his family now reside in Spartanburg, South Carolina which they’ve called home for the past thirteen years.
