Meet The Team
The Rootze by Wamaco team is made up of five Moms who know how to coordinate work needs with family needs, support Wamaco customers with their business needs, and organize their work schedules to assist in the smooth running of Wamaco’ s business. Balance is the key, and this team understands the balance it takes to help customers with their needs while ensuring Wamaco meets its contractual obligations and business demands. This team not only sees what needs to be done on a daily basis but anticipates what demands will present themselves in the future. Wamaco would not be thriving today if it were not for the understanding and support of these wonderful ladies.
Wanda is majority owner of Wamaco and has fulfilled her lifetime desire to own a business. Under her leadership, Wamaco has fine-tuned its array of product offerings to specifically meet the needs of retailers. She brings a history of financial and business acumen from the management positions she has held in Kamloops, BC and Winnipeg, MB. She is tenacious and steadfast, which has been the elixir in making this company not only survive but thrive. Her organization and management skills have navigated Wamaco through some rough waters and with the help of her great team she has turned Wamaco into a supportive, helpful, strong company.
Jennifer is minority owner of Wamaco and has thankfully joined the company to work Wanda—her mom. Jennifer has an academic background with a Masters of Community Health which lends itself to the critical thinking, managing and resolution that her position needs. Wearing a number of hats in the organization requires the need to prioritize and categorize daily demands. She navigates through complex, rigorous, time-sensitive situations to understand and resolve issues, and then designs structures that work for our team. Her thoroughness has been a pillar of the foundation of Wamaco’s success and has nearly eradicated picking and packing errors in the shipping department.
Rebecca (Becky) brings a history of warehouse management experience and demonstrates her great organizational thinking every day. She has taken on every task she has been presented with and has streamlined and organized it with great proficiency. Under her leadership, the warehouse and packing areas have transformed into systematic, consistent and functional areas that are vital to the operation of a successful business. Her dry sense of humour makes our team burst out in laughter constantly.
Rochelle showed her spontaneity the moment she was interviewed. She took on the dubious task of marketing Wamaco by reworking the website, scheduling sales campaigns, and setting up a marketing strategy. She has worked tirelessly with the new digital marketing strategy which includes developing a completely new ecommerce website and adding other digital marketing tools. Her sense of humour and gregarious outlook has not been dampened under the weight of all this development and she is considered the party planner of the team. She welcomes customers with a wonderfully infectious smile as she helps them navigate through their product needs. The team would not be as rich as it is without her.
Karen is the silent, steady, constant on the Wamaco team. She quietly goes about her tasks in an efficient and deliberate manner, to the astonishment of the other rowdy members of the team. Just as the team thinks it should step up the pace to get some project done, Karen has already done it. To speak of the best qualities that Karen brings to the team would be guessing because Karen’s best qualities are that she gets the job done in the quickest, most efficient, organized, and complete manner with the least fanfare. She is Wamaco’s stealth bomber.
