Wajax CEO retires

Oct. 17, 2021

Mark Foote will retire as president and CEO of Wajax Corp., Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Dec. 31. Ignacy (Iggy) Domagalski, CEO, Tundra Process Solutions, which was acquired by Wajax in January 2021, will be appointed president and CEO of Wajax upon Foote’s retirement. Foote has served as president and CEO of Wajax since March 2012. He oversaw the reorganization of Wajax from independent product divisions to an integrated distribution model, achieved significant improvements in employee safety and satisfaction and implemented a customer-focused growth strategy that combines a broad range of heavy equipment, industrial parts and engineered repair services businesses to meet the needs of the corporation’s approximately 32,000 commercial, industrial and resource customers.

“It has been a real privilege to lead the Wajax team and to contribute to the ongoing success of such a storied Canadian company,” Foote said. “I look forward to working with Iggy and the leadership team to ensure a successful transition, and I am convinced Iggy’s leadership will result in an even stronger organization for our team and our customers.”

Domagalski joined Tundra in 2008 and, after serving as chief operating officer, was appointed CEO in 2016. Since then, he has led the team, which has built Tundra into a Canadian leader in the industrial parts and engineered repair services businesses, the company says. Following Wajax’s acquisition of Tundra, Domagalski became a member of the Wajax senior leadership team and has participated actively in the development of the corporation’s heavy equipment and industrial parts and services strategies for 2022 and beyond.
