Early Life

The son of Harold Lloyd Steward (1925-1999), a mechanic, and Dorothy Elizabeth Massingale (1928–present), a homemaker, Steward was born in Chicago, Illinois. The entire family relocated to Clinton, Missouri, in 1953.

Steward experienced racism and hardship while growing up in Clinton.

According to Steward, who was one of a small group of African-American high school students that integrated the public swimming pool in Clinton in 1967, “I distinctly remember segregation—separate schools, sitting in the balcony at the movie theater, and being excluded from the public pool.”

In 1973, Central Missouri State University awarded Steward a BS in commerce.

Career in Business

David Steward worked as a production manager for Wagner Electric from 1974 to 1975, a sales representative for Missouri Pacific Railroad from 1975 to 1979, and a senior account executive for Federal Express from 1979 to 1984.

In 1981, he was named salesman of the year at Federal Express and was inducted into the organization’s hall of fame. Before starting World Wide Technology, he was the owner of Transportation Business Specialists and Transport Administrative Services.

In addition, David founded the international technology and supply chain management firm Telcobuy.

World Wide Technology

A system integrator called World Wide Technology was discovered by David Steward in 1990, and later the installation of enterprise-wide imaging, conversion services, and telecommunication networks was the main focus of WWT in 1993.

Telcobuy.com was created in 1999 after World Wide Technology’s telecoms segment was spun off. Although revenues fell in 2002 as World Wide Technological felt the effects of the technology slump, sales for the two businesses continued to rise.

David established World Wide Technology Holding Company as the parent company for the two businesses after the combined reported revenues of the two companies reached $1 billion in 2003.

With a projected revenue of more than $11 billion for 2018, World Wide Technology would be among the top private businesses in St. Louis.
