Dr. John Walker has been an economics professor and a highly successful entrepreneur. As the founder of Andesa Services, Dr. Walker is a pioneer of the information economy, whose business vision was a direct outgrowth of his economics training. Because of his belief in the fundamental importance of economics as a field of study, in 2001 he announced a gift of nearly $7 million to fund the expansion and enhancement of Clemson University’s economics department.
John has been active in supporting the ministry of Young Life. He first became associated with Leighton Ford Ministries when Kevin Ford directed a multi-year consultation with Andesa through TAG Consulting, the firm Kevin led prior to LFM.
