Meet the Founders of iGo Academy
iGo Academy was created by the very best home inspection educators in America. They built an unparalleled program that leverages Certified Master Inspectors® to deliver a curriculum that actually transitions to on-the-job success. Together, they have over 60 years of combined experience!
Kevin O’Malley is the Executive Vice President of Education at InspectionGo and has held a career in home inspections for over 36 years. He is a well-known educator and the first in the nation to receive his “Authorization to Teach” home inspection from the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Department in 1989.
Kevin has authored dozens of home inspection books and articles, and created the most widely used home inspection report system throughout the 90s and early 2000s, which has been employed on millions of home inspections across the United States and Canada.
Not only is Kevin a serial entrepreneur, he is an artist, music lover, and thrives on helping others create successful careers and businesses. When he sold his first home inspection school to Kaplan in 2002, the company had an alumni count of over 15,000 graduates.
Wade Williamson is the Vice President of Product Strategy at InspectionGo. He has founded and managed several real estate service companies over the last 22 years after starting as a real estate investor and contractor renovating homes throughout Colorado. Wade founded Axium, Inc and Axium Inspections in 2008, which is now one of the largest home inspection companies in the country with over 6,000 annual inspections.
Wade created Axium Academy to train new home inspectors to assist in the company’s growth in Denver and Atlanta. He has created subsidiaries of Axium, Inc to service home inspectors including: The Radon Testing Company, Sewer Optics, Telos Aerial, Axium Radon Mitigations, Listing Pro, iOpenHouse and SignREdesign.
