Wikk Industries Inc. announces a transfer of ownership on June 25, 2018. The new owners, Brian and Amy Hawthorne, are a husband and wife team with the experience and energy to continue Wikk’s growth as an industry leader in quality, reliability and innovation. The Hawthornes have deep roots in Wisconsin. They were born and raised in the state, went away to college and returned to Wisconsin 22 years ago to raise their family. Their two children are now off at college, making this an opportune time for Brian and Amy to own and run Wikk. They will work together in complementary roles to build the business.
Brian has 28 years of sales and management experience in the residential and commercial building industry, while Amy’s background is in finance and administration. Wikk Industries was founded in 1980 by Lee Wikkerink and was led by Lee’s daughter, Lori Bedard, from 2003 to 2018. Lori will be actively involved in the ownership transition and Wikk’s excellent staff will remain in their current roles, continuing to provide the quality and service expected from Wikk Industries.
Please contact Brian, Amy or Lori at 414.421.9490 with questions about the transition.
