Bill Wade

Bill Wade

Bill Wade co-founded WAS with his father, Lisle Wade, in 1988. He holds an engineering degree from Auburn University and had a number of construction jobs during his college summers. Job titles included iron worker, panel erector and an industrial chimney sweep (that one was bad). He spent 3 ½ years in sales for Xerox prior to starting WAS.

 

Bill enjoys working with architects in the building design phase, the competitive bid process and working with installers to see a quality finished project. Sometimes we only get past stage 1 or 2 but that’s the way things go!

 

Bill enjoys skiing, fishing, cross training, and reading books with lots of pictures during his time off.

Working with Wade Architectural Systems since 2003 in design, sales, estimating and project management.

Peter arrived in Texas and at Wade Architectural Systems as fast as he could, born in the United Kingdom with stops in the Cayman Islands and Aruba.

Peter really enjoys working with architects to select the appropriate products and work with great sub-contractors that provide a high quality install for a project that everyone can be proud of.

Christy Serafini

Christy Serafini

With a background in Residential Construction and Engineering, Christy Serafini started at Wade Architectural Systems (WAS) as an Administrative Assistant in 2003. In 2006, realizing Christy was not being used to the best of her abilities, she was promoted to Project Manager and Sales. Since that time, Christy has taken on various roles and positions for the company and is now considered WAS’ Business Manager. However, she continues finding time to quote projects and still loves the thrill of a big sale!

 

Christy wears a lot of hats at WAS! Above all, her main goal is good customer service. That requires making sure projects run as smoothly as possible as well as assist contractors with any issues that may arise and maintain good communication between supplier, Architect, contractor and installer.

 

At times it appears Christy is married to this job, but when she does take a break, she enjoys spending time with her “actual” husband and daughters, relaxing at the lake with a good book, or in front of the TV watching football. Go Houston Texans!!

THREE MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF ZINC

  • Resistance: Zinc is not corrosion-sensitive; a self-protective coating forms on its surface when it comes into contact with the atmosphere. These products require no special maintenance, and have an estimated lifespan of between 40 and 100 years depending on the environment.
  • Adaptability: The products are suitable for all types of buildings. They are designed to meet specific local requirements and current regulations, and can be used in new and renovated buildings.
  • Integration: NedZink products can be used for classic and complex forms (conical, single or double curves) and adapt perfectly to dimensional constraints.
