THE TEAM

Marvin Walker
Founder and CEO, Day Runner, Inc.
Marvin Walker has always been an entrepreneur. Growing up in his native Guyana, Walker would sell plantain chips in plastic bags on the streets alongside other children helping to make ends meet. His family soon immigrated to the United States and situated in Bronx, New York, where his mother worked tirelessly as a hotel housekeeper. Learning the value of hard work from his mother and step-father, Walker enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating high school, hoping to end the cycle of poverty for his family. While serving as a machine gunner in the Marines, he studied successful entrepreneurs and the industries where they thrived.

After four years in the Marines, Walker decided not to re-enlist in the military but instead chose to nally pursue his entrepreneurial goals. He worked hard as a concrete truck driver during the housing bubble to fund his ventures, often listening to audiobooks about building businesses during his routes. One of Walker’s rst ventures during that time included selling CDs out of the trunk of his car, sealing the plastic wrapping over candlelight just as he did while selling plantain chips as a boy. Soon, those CDs became relationships with major record companies and artists, and he worked closely with the likes of Outkast’s Big Boi and others hosting meet-and-greets throughout the country during multi-million dollar tours.

As the economy began to decline and the housing bubble burst, Walker found himself near where he started - sometimes having to pursue his dreams from homeless shelters in New Jersey where he signed his rst recording contract. But, his drive to succeed refused to die. As the economy rebounded, Walker worked to regain stability as a courier, reminiscent of those days he drove the concrete trucks. Feeling he was unfairly paid working for companies, he again turned to entrepreneurship and con- vinced a friend to nance his rst two sprinter vans to help him fulll a delivery route he found on Craigslist.

That one job became the start of an empire.

As time went on, the one freight job eventually turned into dozens, and Walker recruited 18 drivers to help him fulll the obligations. Still not having the freedom and power to take ownership over the routes he secured and the drivers he recruited, in 2017 he began to develop Day Runner, Inc. - an on-demand delivery service designed to address the minimal use of technology, communication and customer service in the industry through a mobile application. Additionally, Day Runner would allow him to mobilize thousands of drivers for some of the world’s largest companies and even individuals needing on-demand help.
Today, Day Runner, Inc. has over 2,000 drivers across the United States, servicing clients such as Amazon, American Red Cross, LabCorp, RateLinx, Ralph Lauren and more.
