Wade has been involved in every facet of the business since Tasker bought the company in 2015 and was instrumental during the due diligence process before the purchase of the company's transformation to what it is today. "Nobody is better qualified for the position, as he has been involved in every facet of our business development since 2015, including finance, operations, and sales. More importantly, Cory perfectly defines our values," says Tasker. Wade has served as the Vice President of Finance and Operations of EMCS for the last seven+ years. During that time,Wadehas been credited with various important accomplishments, including the acquisition of Hull Tender International Inc by EMCS and the ownership of the intellectual property at the core of the new sustainable technology that will form part of the future R&D of the MARELCOTM Wave sustainable antifouling solution. In addition, he was instrumental in the distribution deal with Cathelco Ltd for the distribution of their full suite of marine growth and corrosion protection products in North America.

"Overseeing such a talented and driven team in the fast-paced environment in which we operate keeps me on my toes. I want to ensure that we continue to grow while maintaining the stability that has kept us in business for 67 years. I look forward to becoming President and the future success of EMCS," says Wade.

Before this position, Wade had several successful businesses and partnered with Tasker in two other companies over their 30-year relationship. Wade understands the culture of EMCS and is respected by the team; he will therefore continue to uphold the legacy of EMCS, becoming one of the most successful and respected businesses in the marine industry.

According to Tasker, "EMCS Industries is very pleased to be further benefiting from his years of experience with our organization to serve our customers better. We fully expect Wade will be an invaluable asset in the years to come that allows us to provide our customers with high-quality antifouling and anticorrosion products and services while enabling us to achieve our goals for growth as a company."

Tasker will remain as CEO of EMCS Industries. Tasker will take on all strategic running of the organization and will continue to play an integral part in assisting Wade in growing EMCS via strategic initiatives, being a market maker, looking for new partnerships, sustainable product development, and other nonoperational roles.
