John Walker - In Memory Of An Honoured Market Leader
John Walker passed away on October 29, 2011. His consistently positive approach to both life and business set the tone and standards for Wadetech's sales and marketing team. His passing was a great loss to both Wadetech and the industry in general . John was an enthusiastic and positive sales leader who was admired and respected by staff and clients alike throughout the marketplace, and his extraordinary philosophy and practices will continue to guide Wadetech for many years to come.
John started his sales career with Bruning Corporation where he developed a clear understanding of the document distribution requirements of the construction industry. He was a founding partner with The Drafting Clinic in 1979 and Walker Digital Systems in 1991. His commitment to service quality and his deep insight into the needs of a quickly evolving industry helped him guide the companies he launched to become recognized industry leaders.
Walker Digital Systems was sold in 1999 to pave the way for John to join forces with Les Wojcianiec and David Newton to establish today's Wadetech Group of companies. Success was a natural outcome for John, and for him the formula was simple. Treat your customers with care and respect, offer them value and outstanding service, and they will reward you with their trust - and this remains Wadetech's mantra.
John may no longer be with us in person but the many trusting relationships with clients and industry suppliers that he developed over the years certainly remain, and the growth to the current eleven Wadetech locations that his leadership helped drive is proof enough that he was on to something good
