John Spader

arms widerIn 1987 Duane’s son, John, joined the Spader RV dealership as a salesman and learned first-hand how the Spader Total Management system worked. John discovered a natural ability to see how numbers relate, and soon migrated over to Spader Business Management, first as a sales trainer, then working through several other positions in the company.

Eventually, John was added as the third person in top management, working closely with his father and Noel Lais to pilot the company through its evolution from software development to consulting and training. In 2003, Duane turned the company over to John as president, with Noel continuing his instrumental role as vice president of operations.
