If you’ve established an account with Walker Tracker, you might have talked to Chad. Undoubtedly, you left that conversation with every question answered. Chad loves to chat with customers, taking every opportunity to establish and build relationships. His friendly spirit and commitment to helping others engage in lifetime wellness make him a perfect fit within Walker Tracker.
A Lifetime Adventurer
Chad’s childhood was spent outside. Growing up in San Jose, California, the year-round warm weather lent itself to never-ending outdoor adventures. Chad played baseball and participated in a local Boy Scout troop. He also went on plenty of biking escapades with his friends.
As he grew older, Chad expanded his explorations to a more global level. He and his now-wife spent 10 days climbing Kilimanjaro, where he proposed on Christmas morning. They enjoy visiting family in Costa Rica and spending time in the jungle.
But the most epic feat of all? Raising their two sons, who they hope to take on explorations around the world.
The Journey to Walker Tracker
For someone as adventure-oriented as Chad, working with a platform that emphasizes health and wellness is a no-brainer. Working in this industry drew Chad to a career at Walker Tracker, and the positive company culture and inclusive environment sealed the deal.
Before finding a home at Walker Tracker, Chad’s career focused on a different aspect of health: fire safety. He built and managed a successful sales team, traveling to the Middle East to install fire doors in Jordan, Qatar, and Azerbaijan. Leading his sales team to reach their annual sales goals again and again primed Chad for his current role at Walker Tracker.
Why does Chad love his position as an Account Executive? He shared that he appreciates the chance to engage with customers and that “you’re selling something you believe in.”
