Career Highlights

For nearly 40 years, Bill has been a workhorse with a high success rate of accomplishments.  With Associate Degrees in Police Science and Security and Loss Prevention, Bachelor Degrees in Accounting, Business Administration and International Economics and Master of Science Degree in Management and Organizational Behavior, Bill’s career has been about life-long learning in the class room and in the field for the benefit of his clients.

Having traveled and worked in 65 countries, Bill’s global experience is vast and expansive.  In each position he has excelled and always put his client first.  Putting his clients first requires listening to their challenges and objectives and customizing solutions for them. One-size solutions sound good, but they often fail because everyone needs unique solutions.

Starting his career working strike duty as a security officer, Bill quickly moved into other areas and for over 34 years protected Kimberly-Clark Corporation’s people, assets and business retiring as Director of Global Security.  During his 34 years with Kimberly-Clark, Bill worked in, developed or led every aspect of the security program and was a leader in redeveloping the company’s Crisis Management and Business Continuity programs.  With a business focus on running effective programs, Bill’s disciplined cost-effective approach allowed K-C to save tens of millions of dollars a year not only in its security program, but also its Corporate Aviation program.  During the last 18 months of Bill’s K-C career, he led a multi-disciplined global project team completely restructuring how security services were delivered at Kimberly-Clark reducing annual operating costs by nearly 30 percent.

During much of his professional career, Bill volunteered his time as a Ham Radio operator active in Emergency Services. Over the span of 20 years Bill created and ran two 501 (C)(3) organizations, which built and maintained communications infrastructure. In addition, for five years he led 1400 Amateur Radio Emergency Service volunteers and coordinated the largest Amateur Radio emergency response in Wisconsin’s history, helping communities deal with the record flooding of 2008.  Bill supported Emergency Management through FEMA as well as the National Weather Service. Bill is a believer in the Incident Command System because it works, and he has completed many FEMA and NIMS training programs.

Bill brings his experience to each client, but his true value is in listening and learning and then implementing a customized solution that improves the client’s organization.

Bill looks forward to learning about your challenges and implementing cost effective solutions that work for you and improve your organization.
