Santana Equipment Trading Company’s Director of Marketing and PR Passes Away

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Robert P. Walker, Director of Marketing and PR for Santana Equipment Trading Company, passed away on April 28 in Lake Zurich, Illinois. Robert, also known as Bob, is survived by his two brothers, Joseph Wilson and Richard Wilczynski.

Robert (“Bob”) Walker brought his marketing talent to the material handling industry when he joined Santana Equipment Trading Company in late 2011. Helping pave the way for a seamless expansion to Phoenix, along with owner Eric Davidson, Bob quickly played a significant role in the company’s operations. Among other things, Bob contributed wholly to Santana Equipment Trading Company by boosting the corporate image, designing a new website, creating an employee recognition award, re-structuring the management positions, and launching a national internship program.

Robert (“Bob”) Walker was a remarkable man, and touched everyone in the industry that he had the pleasure of working with. Bob was a kind, honest man of great honor and strength. He will be greatly missed, and we are all saddened by his passing. In honor of his memory, Santana Equipment Trading Company has created a plaque in his honor, and has also developed a program to encourage health and fitness for employees. The company’s employee recognition award will also be officially known as the “Robert Walker Employee Recognition Award.”
