Michel Julien acquired Moderco in 1985 and in a short time expanded it from being an Eastern Canadian manufacturer to one servicing all of Canada and then to today’s truly International company. Michel retired as President of Moderco in 2014 but remains active as a consultant and advisor especially as it pertains to International sales efforts. His impact on the present day successes of Moderco remains evident in many ways. From the very beginning he had a plan and a vision which, through his leadership and patient guidance resulted in Moderco now being a highly respected and accepted company in the Operable Partition Industry. He is best recognized as being a “people person”, always optimistic and ever eager to assist even today where golf is now as important as partitions. Moderco owes a great deal to Michel, continues to seek out and welcome his guidance and wishes him well in his retirement years.
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.
