Ron is a former Teaching Director of CBS and a member of Fourth Presbyterian Church in Bethesda, MD. Ron founded The Walton Companies in 1984 and has been developing commercial real estate for over thirty years including Class A office buildings, full-service hotels and multi-family residential buildings. (A 2003 article in the Washington Business Journal lauds him as a hands-on, upbeat, and persistent businessman and friend.)
Ron was raised in a ranching family in northwest Oklahoma, graduated from the University of Oklahoma and moved to Washington, DC after college to work with a national CPA firm. While he was raised in a home that attended church weekly, it was not until Ron moved to Washington at the age of 23 years old that he began his journey into true discipleship. Ron has been married to his wife, Nancy, for almost 40 years and they have three married children and six young grandchildren. When not working, Ron spends time with his family, flying his airplane, riding his Harley and hunting and cowboying on his Oklahoma ranch.
