Walker Wilson, Softwood Lumber Buyer

Walker WilsonWalker Wilson joined Bay Wood Products as a softwood lumber buyer and broker in September 2012, and quickly began building relationships with local and regional mill staffs to ensure customer demand for wooden crates and pallets are met every day.

A graduate of Auburn University, Wilson grew up in Pensacola, Florida, and served as President of Junior Civitan International, a service organization, his senior year in high school. In that role, he led a group who raised more than $100,000 for Civitan International Research Center at UAB to fund medical research.

“My dad taught me that you work first and play second,” Walker said, noting that his father, Jimmy Wilson, has been a role model for him. “In his personal life and in his work life, he's been successful. It's been really gratifying to see others in the pallet and lumber businesses look up to him.”

Walker is an active member of the Pensacola Civitan Club and the Pensacola Young Professionals where he co-chairs the Government Affairs team.

“It's vital to promote service within our communities,” Walker said. “Many times, people can't always do for themselves. We should try to give back whenever we can.”
