A life long resident of Central Florida, Walker Mobility Scooter Rental’s President John R Walker feels gratitude and wonderment having spent his life in The City Beautiful. John recalls, “Remember driving down I-4 and all you would smell is orange blossoms and Merita Bread, dreamy childhood memories indeed.”

After graduating from Lake Brantley High and Flagler College he set forth on a musicians lifestyle landing him as a session drummer at Parc Studios located in Altamonte Springs. There he worked with many of Orlando’s musical luminaries and was asked to drum for Grammy award winning band A Flock of Seagulls. John explains, “It was cool. I was doing session work with Eddie the guitarist, and he asked me if I wanted to become the drummer. Of course, I was over the moon, it was RockNRoll!!”

A few successful tours later after arriving home his father asked him if he was interested in starting a tourism based medical equipment rental company. John shares, “At the time there was only one company in all of Orlando providing this service. Dad and I started with 7 scooters and a dream.” That dream took Walker Mobility to unimaginable firsts and heights. For well over a decade they were the biggest rental company in North America. Mr. Walker credits the company’s longevity to always improving your guest services and providing better equipment than the competition. He also credits his employees over the years. The company has little employee turnover. John sees employees as extended family. “Take care of your employees, and they take care of your business it’s that simple.” With plans to expand into another market John is not resting on his accomplishments. What motivates him is building from the ground up. He still enjoys the ups and downs of entrepreneurial life. 

His hobbies include surfing, snowboarding, wake surfing, and live music. After work you can find John in his award winning lakeside modern custom home located on Lake Conway in the up-scale Oak Island neighborhood. With trusty companions Butch and Winnie his German short-haired pointer and Dalmatian there is no lack of downtime.
