Bill began his career as a firefighter/EMT for a county in West Virginia. A year after starting that position, Bill began working as a part-time dispatcher for a neighboring county. Shortly after starting this position, Bill realized that emergency communications was the career he was meant to be a part of. Bill continued his dispatching career in Biloxi, MS where he spent three years before moving into a shift supervisor role in Harrisburg, PA. In 2004, Bill stepped into a management role for the City of Goose Creek in South Carolina. Bill served as the communications supervisor with Goose Creek until 2013.
During Bill’s time in South Carolina, he had the opportunity to get involved with the South Carolina Chapter of APCO. He would eventually become president and served in that role for two years. After leaving South Carolina, Bill accepted a position in Flagler County, FL as their communications manager before becoming a full-time staff member with APCO International.
In his spare time, Bill sings with a southern gospel quartet that is based out of Kentucky, is the CEO of a competitive drum and bugle corps and tries to slow down the clock on his recently graduated daughter who is now a Freshman at Marshall University.
