Walkers: The Next Generation

Walkers welcomes fourth generation to the business

Walkers Cycles of Leicester welcomed a fourth generation family employee when Jack Walker joined the company in September.

Jack is the son of current director Nick and is learning the ropes in all areas of this long established cycle component distributor, while bringing IT and social media skills to the family business.

Jack Walker said: “I’m really enjoying it, there’s a great atmosphere and everyone has made me feel very welcome. Although I’ve been here on and off since I was small helping out in the school holidays, it feels really good now to be permanent. We sell some great products, the new Serfas lights are flying off the shelves, and I’m very proud to be part of our family business.”

Walkers was founded in the 1930s by Stanley Walker. It was later taken over by his son Mick, who ran the company until 2002 when he retired. He then passed it to his two sons Nick and Andy Walker who run the company today.
