Michel Julien acquired Moderco in 1985 and expanded it from a Regional to an International company. Still very active as President, he is the primary reason for the success that Moderco has enjoyed to date. He started Moderco with only a dream and as a local manufacturer of operable walls. Through his vision, leadership, guidance and above all patience Moderco is now an internationally represented and highly respected company. Active in his community and business associations Michel is best recognized as a “people person”, always optimistic and eager to assist. His most redeeming virtue is his loyalty to his Moderco associates: never the President – always the friend and colleague. Congratulations and many more years as President is the wish of all.
Dave Parsons has devoted over 40 years to the Operable Walls Industry and Moderco was privileged to have him on board for 14 of those years. Hired officially in 1996 as a Regional Sale Manager, he is the main reason for the great reputation that Moderco enjoys in the United States. Thanks to Dave, Moderco can now benefit from a highly praised reputation in our Industry and is also respected by its peers. For us at Moderco, Dave Parsons will always remain a great source of inspiration and reference for sales strategy, market tendencies and knowledge of our Industry. We proclaim Dave Parsons the mentor of mentors and it is with great pride that Moderco inducts in its new Wall of Fame this pioneer of our Industry – Mr. Dave Parsons.
Rob Pelletier: Tragically in January of 2008 Rob Pelletier, founder, President and principal owner of RPC Houston Texas, passed away at the young age of 42. Rob was a husband, father, employer, responsible corporate citizen, friend and valued south Texas distributor partner of Moderco. He started his construction career as a hands on installer of Skylights. Shortly thereafter he established his own sales and installation company (RPC) and expanded his product portfolio to include operable partitions. In 2004 RPC and Moderco established an exclusive distributor/manufacturer partnership encompassing south and western Texas which due to Rob’s foresight and vision remains active and extremely successful to this day. Rob was truly a Texan, insisting on “doing his part”, picked up the tools, climbed the scaffolding, always “hands-on” as well as managing and growing RPC. He worked hard, was a true family man – nothing was more important that his Robin, Matthew, Christopher and Grace - but also played hard. One of personal accomplished dreams was to own Texas property so he purchased a ranch in East Texas, raising cattle, hunting and fishing, riding his horses, hosting Texas style parties for family and associates. Rob’s spirit continues to drive RPC. He was truly a loved husband and father, employer and friend to so many including all at Moderco. He is missed each and every day. Moderco is pleased and honored to induct Rob Pelletier as the first distributor partner on the Moderco Wall of Fame.
