Let’s rendezvous with Wayne Tuck, Senior Director for Yardi’s residential portfolio in Canada. Tuck supports Canadian clients as well as those from the US and Latin America.
Meet Wayne Tuck
Tuck has worked with Yardi for four years but has been in the industry as a client of Yardi’s since 2004. He is involved primarily in the support of clients and teams that service them.
“I always say to employees I work with, ‘You are not working for me; I am working for you; we’re working together.’ It’s my role to guide, support, and direct them to be better for our clients. When I first joined, my message was, ‘I’ll share as much as I know about the multifamily industry in Canada, and you share as much as you know about software, and this will be a great relationship,’” said Tuck.
Tuck says Yardi’s corporate motto resonates with him, as do Yardi’s company values: Take care of our clients, take care of our employees, take care of our communities, stay focused and grow.
“I have been extremely fortunate to participate on Yardi Toronto’s Charity Committee, helping with the organization’s philanthropic efforts,” shared Tuck.
One beneficiary is Canadian client Toronto Community Housing, where Yardi contributes post-secondary scholarships for individuals living in social housing. The funds help provide an opportunity for recipients to pursue their dreams.
“In addition, the Investing in our Diversity scholarships are awarded annually, and I’m extremely proud to represent Yardi in helping deliver them,” shared Tuck.
Learning and leadership
Tuck’s journey with Yardi has been a chance to gain a perspective on how real estate and tech companies operate around the world. “We always rely on teams outside Canada in support of our clients, and the diverse nature of our organization and its geographical reach offers a unique opportunity to gain a truly global perspective,” he said.
What does he enjoy most about working for Yardi? The chance to continuously expand his knowledge.
“I am inquisitive by nature; I have learned so much here at Yardi, and I continue to learn each and every day. I’m also focused on sharing my learning and experience to benefit our employees and their ongoing development,” Tuck said.
Tuck is also a part of the hiring process for Yardi. In interviews with candidates, Tuck said: “I always reinforce integrity as the core value (at Yardi) that resonates most. Going back to the motto, it is not only the attention, dedication, and commitment to our purpose that resonates but also our consistent delivery of products and services that demonstrate how we fulfill it.
“Integrity for me is not just about doing the right thing; it’s about having the will to do it right no matter what barrier or perceived barrier is in front of you.”

Hockey with heart

His son and daughter both compete at a high level in two of the premier minor hockey leagues in the world—The Greater Toronto Hockey League and the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association. He also volunteers and helps his son’s team as a trainer, which finds himself in the ice-skating rink several times a week during the Fall and Winter seasons.
Tuck also enjoys riding his motorcycle, creative writing, and painting abstracts with acrylic when he is not in skates. Check out his LinkedIn bio here.
