Founder and Chairman, World Wide Technology
In 1990, David Steward co-founded World Wide Technology, Inc. with 4,000 square feet of office space, lots of perseverance and a burning desire to win in the competitive field of distributing IT hardware, software and services.
Over the past two decades, Steward and his executive team have built what started as a small logistics/transportation audit company into a $5 billion systems integrator that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions to customers throughout the world.
Specializing in delivering and supporting advanced technology solutions, World Wide Technology brings a new way of thinking and a proven approach to how organizations evaluate, architect and implement technology. Through its Advanced Technology Center and collaborative partner ecosystem, WWT provides its customers with technical and engineering expertise and hands on access to the latest technology products and solutions. Powered by its Integrated Technology Center (ITC), WWT also offers a complete array of configuration and integration services and a full suite of advanced logistics, inventory management and supply chain solutions.
As Chairman, Steward plays a key role in WWT's pursuit of major contracts and has helped build and nurture its culture and core values. WWT was recently ranked #24 by FORTUNE magazine in their Top 100 Places to Work in America. It’s an honor that demonstrates that the core values on which Steward founded WWT more than 20 years ago are still alive and well today.
