Delta Waterfowl chapters and chairs across Canada count on John Rakoczi’s work to conduct successful events and raise maximum funds for the cause of waterfowl and waterfowl hunters. He said it’s what makes his job so rewarding.

“I like to see the end product of my efforts,” Rakoczi said. “I reach out to each chapter chair, then putting their events items together, shipping and tracking them, to make sure they arrive intact and in the right hands before each event.”

Rakoczi grew up on a tobacco farm in Norfolk County, Ontario, just a few miles north of the Delta Waterfowl Hunting Heritage & Conservation Center. He studied agri-business at Fanshawe College.

Prior to joining Delta, his career was focused on telecommunications, specifically on technical support and design of copper and fiber network devices. In his work now, Rakoczi calls on skills developed in standardization of equipment, tools and provisioning processes.

Rakoczi is an avid angler on both open water and hard water. He also enjoys boating and the occasional round of golf. He has the dream of one day owning a vintage Corvette Stingray.
