Geoff Stewart is director of product safety for Club Car in Evans, Georgia, and he loves solving problems. He loves problem-solving so much that he’s racked up six patents for his inventions.
His favorite invention is the golf car pedal assembly, which includes a unique, reliable way to release the parking brake when the accelerator is pressed. It uses a star wheel that can engage in many different positions.
“Creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking and technical knowledge are important to innovating, but I think the most important aspect is devotion. You have to keep thinking about the problem or idea and apply outside experiences and thoughts to that problem. Do not give up!”
