Marc Deschamps, business development manager of Walker Glass Co., will retire effective March 30.

Deschamps started with Walker Glass in April 1997 as director of finance. He held this role until 2003 at which time he launched a second career with the company, as business development manager.

“For a period of more than twenty years, Marc contributed significantly to Walker’s prosperity,” says Ross Christie, vice president sales and marketing. “Thanks to him, today we inherit a solid base on which Walker will continue to build for years to come. Marc was much more than an important colleague, his vision helped propel the company.”

Under his direction, numerous products and programs were launched, and an architectural team covering North America was successfully built and fully trained. He was also responsible for the marketing team and the promotion of various products.

His involvement in the glass industry was also significant, and he actively participated as a GANA member. Deschamps was awarded Member of the Year in 2017.
