Lee Walker is the President of Walker Auto Parts in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
In 2009 Lee rejoined our family business as the first of the third generation of Walkers. Harry G. Walker Jr. started the family’s journey in the automotive aftermarket back in 1960 in Raleigh. Three of his four sons joined him in the business in the 70s and 80s and now there are 6 Walkers working in the business.
In 2009, when the firm transitioned from being an independent parts supplier into the NAPA family, Iit was Lee's first few months back in the business. His focus was on getting to know and understand their customers and to lead the integration of other business teams into the organization. Walker's acquired and launched a NAPA store every year since 2009 and now are humble and proud to represent NAPA in 35 counties in NC. The team of 725 embodies old school integrity and new school innovation. Lee is poised to lead that team into the future of the next 60 years of the Automotive Aftermarket.
