SG360° Announces Sudden Passing of Its President and CEO, John A. Wallace Jr.
It is with profound senses of loss and sadness that SG360° announces the sudden and unexpected death of their President and CEO John A. Wallace, Jr., who passed away at his work home the evening of January 4, 2022.
Day-to-day operations of the company will continue to be run by SG360°’s seasoned executive leadership team during this transition. SG360° has capital support of the Miami and Atlanta-based investment firm ICV Partners. ICV Partners and the SG360° board of directors stand ready to provide the necessary guidance for the company to build on its successes from 2021 and to continue its successful growth strategy.
Willie Woods, Founder and President of ICV Partners, said “John’s vision for SG360° and rock steady leadership has been integral to our not just surviving 2020 and the COVID-19 shutdown, but thriving during 2021 while navigating the challenges posed by both the global pandemic and unprecedented strains on supply chains and hiring. Our immediate goal going forward is to continue on the path John set us on.”
Mr. Wallace assumed leadership of the company in September of 2019 following a nine-month stint as Interim President. His all too brief tenure saw SG360° undergo growth in an extremely unique set of pandemic-related circumstances amidst a very competitive marketplace.
One of his most endearing traits as a business leader was his regular, personable email communications with the company rank and file. In these weekly messages, Mr. Wallace held forth on the state of the company, always making a point of how proud he was to lead such an exceptional team, as well as passing along his wit and witticisms on life, and encouraging those in his employ to try to find an optimal work/life balance.
