John joined Walters Inc. in 1995 and started as a detailer and squad leader. His drive and dedication over the years eventually resulted in his current Detailing Manager role. John’s experience at Walters has included participation in many interesting and challenging projects; he was one of the first pair of trainees on Xsteel (now Tekla Structures) and has been detailing exclusively in this program for most of his career at Walters.
As Detailing Manager, John leads the team of Structural Steel Detailers, Engineers and Industrial Designers on our various projects by providing management of the resources for the team, troubleshooting problems and providing planning and staff leadership. In collaboration with Project Management and Production, he sets priorities and staffing to ensure that project schedules are met. He is also responsible for developing the team’s skills and accountability, ensuring that drawing office output meets our quality standards.
John always believes strongly in supporting those less fortunate through involvement with both church and secular agencies. He channels this passion at Walters through the newly-formed Community Support Team, which is working to encourage community engagement in our employees.
