Vice President & Owner
Bill ensures a smooth operation by overseeing day-to-day field activities. Bill is certified in OSHA 40-hour HAZWOPER, Confined Space Rescue, and does whatever it takes to get the job done for his customers and for his team.
Not only was he with Performance Industrial before the re-brand, but he actually left to run his own residential painting and cleaning company. After 12-years of that journey, he decided it was time to return to where he belongs − at Performance Industrial with his family. What he brought back with him was a unique, fresh perspective on operating a business, making him a great fit for his current role. When he’s not running things around the office and out in the field, Bill enjoys hunting, riding his motorcycle, and spending time with his family.
