Retired in 2013 after a 44-year career in public service working as the Administrator of Florida Department of Health and Sarasota County Government Health and Human Services. Similarly, he was fortunate to work as Deputy County Administrator with Sarasota County Government in leading their health and human services. Additionally, he spent 28 years in the US Army in both active duty and reserve capacities. In his work years in Sarasota County, he was privileged to be a part of a dynamic community that is very collaborative and forward-thinking in its approach to health and human services, and learned much from his experiences being a participant in many community organizations and initiatives.
Following retirement, he continued to work with community non-profit agencies, local government, state government, and local foundations with a focus on leadership, strategic planning, community engagement, and project management.
The goal of Bill’s work with organizations is to improve leadership and planning, align their work to community values and expectations, facilitate connections and collaborations with a broader community network that shares their vision of the future, and develop strategies and plans to achieve community-focused outcomes.
His formal education included an MBA and MPH, which enabled him to apply business principles within the multi-faceted discipline of public health with the goal of helping foster a healthy and prosperous community.
